New wheel pic.

After a solid year of looking for wheels, I finally found the right ones. Here is a pic I took today. The wheels are 18X8 Voxx Matrix's (35mm offset) with Kuhmo Ecsta MX 245/40/18 tires. They fit like a glove and don't rub even at full turn. The car is dropped 1" with Sprint springs BTW.

I actually found them in a random search on eBay. I waited until the last few minutes and placed the winning bid. Very happy with the looks, although I am thinking the car needs lowered another inch or so.

Or you could get a tire thats closer to the stock size, like a 245/45-18, tirerack shows 32 tires in that size.

The car looks good with those wheels. I think you need big brakes instead of lowering it more. Those little brakes look weak behind the monster wheels. The ride height doesn't look too bad by the way. It could just be the picture though.
