Thanks man! I live in Phoenix our roads are actually really good. (I used to live in the Mid-west and bunch of pot holes) So I will diffly be lowering it! I will keep you guys updated it'll probably be after the holidays thoughYeah, I got 20x8.5 Rims Tsw Nurburgrings, and I wrapped them in Continental Extreme Contact DWS (And I really love the wheels / tires)
Definitely more rolling resistance than the Michelin's Latitude Tour HP, but the wider tire makes the car feel even more solid on the ground, with better cornering, and since I painted my calipers... it looks great!
With stock suspension & 20s you get a little more bumpy / vibration from road imperfections, but personally I think it's more than acceptable (my mom approves both driving the new wheels and riding as passenger)
I personally wanted 19s for rims, as 19s allowed for 10mm more sidewall and a much better visual ratio to the car, but the tire selection really sucked at that size...
Though after getting 20s, I've loved them dearly and have never looked back (I kept my 18s for winter).
As for lowering...
If you live somewhere with good roads like 7thsign (Florida), you'll love going KSports Coilovers... you can really push your car, but for me (NYC), the roads are too rough to run coilovers with the standard spring rates.
I'm switching to H&R Lowering Springs and the stock struts... hopefully it'll be a little less bumpy. (coilovers are great when roads are flat, but here in NY the roads are horrible, and they end up either rocking the car when dampening is too soft, or hit really hard and you snap your neck going over stuff...)
I'll probably want to sell mine if I like the lowering springs so keep an eye out.
I recommend wider tires (with 8 to 8.5" wide rims)
You don't have to lower it... but if you do, consider lowering springs first if your road is bad...
Alright! I just did it, put the order in for Some Motegi MR107 20" rims and tires and the KSport Coilovers and also the Camber kit! So now I just sit back and wait! Will have pics when it gets here
Anyone got some rotors and pads to suggest??
so its been a while im glad to see more crostour getting modded and more going the slammed route this car in my opinion looks so much better slammed so ive since changed my set up and im now on full air ride on ksports. my dampening was tweaked to 14 clicks from full stiff front and back and it rides like its on a cloud
here she is currently resting at work tucking 20's by 10.5 all around
GL thats all natural camber when aired out no modification whats so ever except for the fender roll which was done when i was dropped on the coils. we are kinda blessed with have plenty of room in our rear wheel wells to accomadate such a drop
DM or text me and ill show you the set up and answer any questions you may have.
how are you liking the rotors from brakeperformance? im thinking about going with there's or using R1 concepts since they are offering me a 30% discount
