no.there wasn't much of a lip on them at all. yes my ride is dropped. i advise you to look at the wheel you want in person before you buy. those zenetti wheels looked nice to me in the book i had ,but when i got them the quality sucked. i wanted to sell them as soon as i opened them.

I don't know where u heard that but coilovers in general are not noisy, they are just like any other strut-spring combo.

the tein coilovers for the tsx cause a squeaky noise when installed on a RL, this is due to the upper rubber mounts which have to be removed. Please do a search.

I think that looks so unofficial on luxury cars. Maybe a couple of mm's but not to the extreme. I feel you though, IMO, the ka9's is sexy as hell. They just gotta be dressed right, you know. What sizes do you suggest to stagger and obtain a lip? Again, that's actually the look I want wit' like a 1.5" - 2" drop. Sexy, not over done or the "Fast and Furious" look. SEXY!! Like when I pull up to the club or taking my wife to dinner and valet park, it gets mistaken for an "S" class.
Suggestions 91Legend and anyone else that feels like we do!!!
19 x 8 35 offset or 19 x 8.5 40 offset in front

19 x 9 38 - 45 offset in the back

lip depends on the style of the wheel, there some dude on vipstylecars.com who has a 19x9 37 offset that throws off a huge realistic lip.

sticking out a bit is much better than a wheel that is too sunken into the fenders.

I prefer a more aggressive look.
