I wouldn't go wider than 9.5.

It will be a detriment to performance on all fronts.

Then again if you are asking this question, I have a sneaking suspicion you aren't thinking of installing top-quality coilovers either..

Things not bc, Tien, isc, faction fab, ksport and other like brands.

You'll be looking at companies like kw, ohlins, and rce if you want really good quality.

I agree, although I would add Feal and Fortune Auto to the quality list.

Why does everyone want to go with coilovers instead of a well researched optimal shock and spring set? Is it not cheaper and more reliable? (actual question)

Also, best of luck, OP. For the three weeks I tolerated it on my 15 STI, I had 18x9.5. I remember my offset was reasonable and I was lowered on modest RCE yellow springs. It rubbed and made the car ride like crap, despite all of the forum feedback. Just do your homework and don't rely on the words of others, unless it's from a shop.

It’s like driving on a cloud. I honestly dk why everyone dislikes bags. I love the fact that I can adjust when ever I want. I’m on air lift performance Management and bags (complete package.)

3p or 3h … I have air bags on my Ford Focus but I didn’t go with the complete airlift kit… I did c2b suspension Coilover conversion bags.., ride quality is good but not as good as a full complete kit from air lift…
