15x7 Enkei 92's with Yokohama S Drives. Im also riding on KYB GR-2s with B&G lowering springs. I have some more pictures from a quick photoshoot at the track today that ill post up soon. Enjoy :D

Btw, I would recomend this suspension and wheel/tire setup to anyone who daily drives their colt. It hands like a go cart with little to no body roll but the ride is still very nice. You don't feel all the little bumps and bounce around like you would if you had coilovers. Im also running a custom made strut bar up front to help with the body roll. The car just wants to faster and faster into the corners and it takes them flat with no body roll.

Since I know there are going to be questions asked, I figured I would answer them now.
The wheels and tires are available straight from www.tirerack.com, you can get them already mounted and balanced for free before you get them shipped to your door. I ordered the B&G lowering springs from www.raceinspired.com and they should still be available for the 1989-91 Mitsubishi Mirage. The GR-2s I also got from www.tirerack.com

I was going to get those rims in gold but I decided against them because of all of the "nooks and crannys" to clean. I do like that style a lot, very 80's-ish.

About the B&G Spring/GR2 combo..... Do you feel that the GR2's have enough damping to work well with those lowering springs? I have new GR2's on stock springs and the suspension is just way too soft, it feels like I am riding on a bunch of pillows. I had stock shocks with Eibachs on my Subaru Legacy, and it was a night and day difference when I finally switched to Konis. I will be autocrossing the Colt this year and was thinking about going for the B&G/GR2 combo since I can't get Konis for it.

Can you take some measurements from the ground to the fender for us?

I've been back and forth on going lower with it. It handles amazingly at the height it is right now, but im a sucker for lowered/stanced cars. I definitly don't want to go so low that I have to roll my fenders plus that just takes away from the fun of driving. I really don't want to cut the B&G springs on it because wouldn't that ruin the way the spring performes? Also, that's with the 4g15 in it, I will hopefully be swapping it within the month if everything goes to plan.

Yeah i know but there is nooooo way im going to cut the springs on it since im going to start autoxing pretty soon. I'll get coilovers for it eventually. It handles great at this height, and doesnt look to bad either. :D
