Generally speaking, I wouldn't have aftermarket lowering springs on OEM struts as they're not valved in accordance to them. Best bet would to just opt for coilovers and camber kits if the coilovers you purchase don't have them though most always have camber adjustment on the top-hat of the struts.So I tried to fit my 20x10.5 and everything looks ok with 245/35/20 tires but the gap is ridiculous. Looking at hight I think I could go with springs but not 100% sure . What do you think ? Would Coilovers be a better option?
Update on how they drive. Well! Steering feels heavier, probably because the tires are much stickier. Getting more information through the wheel than before, and I definitely have traded a bit of smoothness away for better road feel. The dead zone in the middle of the steering is almost totally gone. The car just feels more solid and planted, with less lean. It no longer feels like I can get to its limits as easily.After way too much overthinking, I finally did it!

I was fixated on the TS10s for a really long time, both for the clean design and the +50 offset. More recently when I decided it was time to get off the fence and do this, I got convinced that +45 was totally fine. And lo and behold, Enkei released the TSV! It's a little more interesting to look at than the TS10s, so I rather impulsively jumped on them. So glad I did!
When it's time to say goodbye to the car I will probably put the saw blades back on and sell the Enkeis on their own.
Thanks for all your help, guys!
Not my car but I'll chime in. I think black on black can work if you're really committed to making it work. When done really well it's stunning. But it requires like full commitment. If your tires start to get dull and lighter it hurts the look a lot. So spray on that tire shine!I'll get flamed, but the black-on-black doesn't do it for me.
Those wheels look to wide for you to lower your car. They will rub on the fender unless you get them rolled.So I tried to fit my 20x10.5 and everything looks ok with 245/35/20 tires but the gap is ridiculous.

Your car looks Great with those Wheels
