Adding Wheels/Tires and Springs - 2006 Cobalt LS

In case anyone is wondering what changes they might expect from certain mods, here's a before and after shot of my car as it progressed through the metamorphosis.

Bone Stock (just brought it home) :


After replacing the 15" wheels and tires with 16" wheels and tires :


After installing Eibach Sportlines springs :


2006 Cobalt LS 2.2l -> Dragonslayer
Ram Air Hood->GM CAI->2.4l Intake->GM Header->GMPP
Tranny Mounts->Short-Shifter
Sportlines->Shocks->Swaybar->Strutbar
Stocker 15's->205/60 Potenza Grid's
20% Tint->Rebadged->Livery
