im going to lower my EA sedan soon and after that i will be fitting my 17inch rims that have been sitting in my bedroom for about 3 weeks... now once i install the new tyres will i have problems with them rubbing on the car once lowered... also will there be a problem with the speedo ??
im installing superlow kings and havent decided yet on shocks but id say gt gas.
btw how low do superlows go on an EA i want the car atleast level with the top of the tyre..
superlows will have the car sitting RIGHT where u want is, maybe a little lower once they've settled.
you'll want to get the front guards flared a little to avoid the tyres rubbing which doesn't cost much.
the wheels shouldn't effect ur speedo unless you have abnormal tyres on it.

The speedo is only effected if the overall diameter of the wheel tyre combo is changed from standard.
So whether you have 14', 15's, 16's, 17's 18's or 19's, if the overall diameter hasn't changed, neither will your speedo.
That is precisely why there is so many different profile tyres available.
Same with rubbing, it is tyre width and wheel offset which effects this, not rim diameter.
