Default 07 Rim question

Yes I know its another one but was wondering the exact setup some people run, I was looking at getting Deep Dish Cobra Wheels but was wondering about the look of the car, I really want to lower it for handling, but wanted to have it look good as far as clearance in the wheel well goes. Any input would be greatly appreciated

Any possible input? 18X9 Deep Dish 95R Rims would go in the front with 255/45/18 Nitto NT555 Performance tires, and 18X10 Deep dish 95R Rims with 285/40/18 Nitto NT555 Performance tires. Didn't know if lowering it an inch and then putting a chin spoiler would possible.

As long as you get the ones with the 05-up offset you should be good.
I have 18x10 rims (not the particular style you are looking at) with 285/45 tires in the rear and 255/50 tires up front and am on steeda sport springs, so 1" lower in front and 1.25" lower in rear. No problems, looks good.

Thanks, and not appearance, but a quick question about lowering, is there a hassle of actually having to build a suspension to drop it, or will lowering spring suffice.
