How about ride quality between 17" and 18" rims? Also could i fit a 222/45/18 on the sedan with eibach lowering springs? I do drive my cars hard....not jumping or anything like that though.Should that be a consideration? Thanks again
Ride quality is stiffer than w/stock tires but you have to compromise. I love the way it handles. I am running 225-40-18s to stay closer to stock tire & wheel size. You could probably run the 45 series tires. The sedan does have better fender clearance.
To answer your question on the 17s or the 18s it all depends on the weight of the wheels. The 17" OZ F1 Cups ( I loved these wheels, especially on the EVO 6's) are around 24-25lbs while most 18" rims nowadays are around 18-22lbs. In that case go for the 18". A lot of 17" rims are 18lbs and bleow. CHeck out the Volk Racing Gram Lights they're 16.5lbs at www.importhookup.com/wheelotions/special.htm. There's a special for $1500 wheel/tire package on them. Another lightweight affordable wheel is the Superleggeras, you can get them from Tirerack.com.

I am still using factory seats which are just fine. I used the factory mounting points for the seat belts. The harnesses come with new hardware which fit the factory mounting points.
The shoulder belts attach to the rear seat belt mounting points. You can still use the factory seat belts as well. You just have to remove the rear seat bottom cusion only. Be sure to ordere the shoulder belts with the "H" bar on them. They will know what that means. If you dont get them let me know I have some special retainer bars that a friend od mine made for me that work perfectly.
