B&g Springs or SSC?

I have some questions that need answered before Thursday!

First off.. Dont jack this thread! lol

Im getting 17's and 215/45 tires

Which would be best for springs.. I want the car to look amazing , I drive it everyday and ky has its share of bad roads.. SSC springs? Or b&g

Whats the advantages and disadvantages of both?

Where do I get the b&g's from if I decide on them...

Car is still under warranty. but obviously Lowering>Warranty/stock

Thanks for your help..

advantage of B&Gs are they lower your car the most. Not sure about anything else, I hear they are good springs though.

definitely stick with 17's, I wish I had them on my SS, tire prices are freaking stupid over that.
