I'm all for being the first to try something, or doing something a little original. Lord knows I have tried to push the accepted logic of what a G8 should be able to do performance wise with certain mods.

I really respect some of what you have accomplished with getting that car dropped as low as it is, and having the flush look. Sometimes though you get to a point where you just have to leave well enough alone. It isn't giving up, it is just allowing something that is perfect to stay as it is. It is your car and you should do what makes YOU happy first and foremost, but I would have rather seen you attempt this first on a beater car and not the specimen that was your G8...

Since i lowed it it as been pretty bumpy, and if i dont turn it dosent rub as much lol, but im going to raise it just a lil to clear and roll the fender a lil more towards the front of the rear fender to clear some more. Then im gunna get all the fenders repainted in the future.

Phew! I think in all the photos and whatnot floating around, that's the missing detail: "It's not done yet!" A good grind, fill, and paint will clean the fenders up nicely. Took you through a set of tires, though!

Tires are fine, alot of people are scared to rub a little, but you would be surprised how much of a beating the side walls of tires can take.

final numbers are

rear
19x12 +7
front
19x11 -7

a lil aggressive haha

You're sig pic shows you have good taste, not sure about this though. The tires don't even look drivable/safe on those wheels. I'm hoping the finished product looks good.
