New 21's on 128 style

Just put my 21's on and there is a huge difference between my 19 ellipsoids and these new ones. Looks and feel wise. I had NRF Hankooks on my 19's so the ride difference is pretty hard now but when these Conti RF's wear out I'll go to NRF and it'll smooth out the ride I think. There seems to a difference in the handling for the better but that may be my imagination. Thanks for all the advice and help from this forum. I put 20mm spacers in the back and 12mm in the front. I don't think it needs lowering. I only have maybe a finger from the fender to the tire whereas before with my 19's I had almost 3 fingers. Let me know what you guys think of the final result.

Looks very good, not a fan of the big rims, but the 21" OEM style are tight.

nope they were just slapped on, perfect fit. I do need to get used to them though, they feel huge right now but hopefully I don't think the car is all wheel from the side for too much longer. I feel like 20's might have been a little more conservative but I couldn't get past Cougars great looking avatar!!

I always loved those rims. Was dying to get them on my 7, but then I sold it. Great choice!

I think they look great. No need to lower it in my opinion.
