I kinda picture my granite sentra with 17 inch Volk Racing TE-37's in BLACK!

If I get these 17 inchers then I will have to drop my car hard. Most people got their b15 dropped only 1.5...I will go for the minimum of 2"...if not, more.

What do you guys think of BLACK or BRONZE rims? I think they mix it up a little more than just plain silver color.

good luck trying to drop your car that much. Sentra's have very little suspension travel so you will be riding on the bump stops most of the time.

Personally if I were to go with new rims, I would go for a flat gray rim like I have seen on some of the Skyline's I reallllllly like that look but other than that I would pull a Wes and go gun metal powder coat. Those are my opinions tho, also I wouldn't lower my car that much, sure it would look decent but the ride would be utter crap!

They have short suspension travel?? Aww jeez! I wanted to drop them atleast 2" all around. I dropped my other car 1.5" and it was too high for me. There's gotta be a company out there who drops our sentras atleast 2".

I would prefer white rims. I don't know how it would look on a gray car, but for my jade se it would look pretty good (i think)!

I don't like black rims very much. They remind me of wheels without hubcaps. I would prefer gunmetal or silver. But if you like them....more power to ya!

its true.... cant drop them more than that.... I have coilovers and we turned it all the way down. Your best bet is to upgrade to a complete suspension system, that my drop you lower.... tell me how it goes!

i got the eibach sportlines, im kinda glad to hear im not the only one getting these noises. i bought/installed these at Pann Auto in Nasty City. They told me they had a similar prob with the new accords when lowering them. They said they'd wrap some kinda rubber hose around the top coils cuz it worked on the accords. Ill find out tommorow whether it works and pass the info.

Chino, GAB makes shorter struts for lowering. You might check with them about the Sentra. In an essence, those are racing struts and their softest setting is much stiffer then Stage II.

I will check with GAB, but 4real, what is the lowest I can go with my sentra? I was hoping just making 2 inches? I need lower than 1.5....i had 1.5 on my civic and didn't like it....it was too high.

Who makes struts for b15? Eventually, when spring hits, I'm going to start working on my suspension part. I will buy a set of coilovers (if they have any good ones), sruts, wheels/tires, rear sways.

What do you thinK?

i got the sportlines with stock shocks, i cant recommend them brah. The noises i hear from these damn springs are making me crazy. I tried putting some rubber hosing around the top coils to reduce the noise. It didnt at all. As a matter of fact they are coming off soon.
