Everyone keeps asking me that. It's stock, but will be Lovell's Slam It 55mm (2.16") Drop kit in the next couple of weeks.

I'm getting this exact same setup. I love it and think it would look great on a White Hot G8 too. One question Incon, are you sure the rear offset is +45? On VQMotoring's website it lists it as +40 which sounds like it would be the desirable offset for a 20X10 wheel but I think on another thread you said they were +45. Either way they do look like they're tucked inside the rear fenders. Do they look like they're tucked in or do they look like they're sticking out a little? I don't mind rolling the fenders when I get these wheels and lower my suspension but just want to make sure these wheels don't look like they're sticking out of the fenders...

I didn't go through VQ and I dont know if they list the +45 offset, but that is what I have. I dont think I will have to roll the fenders once I lower it, but if I do no big deal because I have a roller handy.

Liquid Red with black wheels looks great! Definitley get a light or medium tint on that thing though, it will really set it off with the black wheels.
