I'm too afraid to lower lol. My last car was a Dodge Neon SXT and I cracked the front bumper because it's so low. If I do it again it would make me sick to my stomach lol

i love the Drag wheels, i was thinkin bout gettin them without the red stripe tho. my buddy has them on his civic hatchback si so it pops the si out lol. but when it comes to the tire... just not my cup of tea there. id go yokohama Sdrive for the small size and yk520s if your gonna bump up to a 215. But great place to get the new rims from man :) :)

dude man you gotta watch those spacers tho! they are dangerous and malible or w/e. if you take your car to any discount tire they arent gonna touch your car if they see those spacers if they do take off a wheel their gonna take the spacer off. they dont let a torque wrench accurately torque cause they can be compressed. and the larger spacers = less threads for your lugs to hold properly. just thowin in my 2 cents there. i love the idea and ive seen +40 with spacers. but id just be carefull...

those rims are nice man!! i like em....

and Electric05 i know spacers aren't everyones cup of tea but they are not bad if installed right.. and you can get longer studs... and good spacers do not compress any..

They are gonna look sweet! I like simple rims with easy lines.... makes the car look SLIQ lol..... for some reason I just hate rims that have bumps, hard corners/edges, and a bunch of rivets everywhere...... you picked an awesome set of rims..... as for tires, rubber is rubber is rubber to me..... tires are over rated IMO--I will never drive street or track at a level of performance where rubber is gonna make a whole lot of difference anyway.

I know you gotta be careful but anyone installing spacers over 5mm without grade 8 extended lugs is asking for trouble. I almost facepalmed this post, not trying to be an ass but it seems like you're just against proper fitment and this is a big issue in the cobalt scene. it is a good precaution though
