Re: BA Futura - dumped and 18" wheels what about ride quality?
i have 'Low' Kings all round on my BA XR8 on 18" after market wheels and to me it makes a huge difference. I had the opportunity to drive the car for a couple of hours before it went into the wheel shop for the additions (purchased with the car) and ride is heaps better and stiffer, but not enough to wreck the 'driveability' of the car.
The lowered springs give the car a much better stance. When you see a standard XR beside it they look a totally different car.
You have to be careful parking and driving thru parking buildings etc... It took me a couple of months and a couple of scrapes on the front spolier to get it right...
