Beautiful! Love the look of cleared out headlights on the 02-03s. Any plans on lowering it? Less wheel gap would compliment the Type-S wheels and the Aspec lip kit. Stunning car, nonetheless!

I have on Tien SS and had it lowered pretty much to the ground but with the scraping and stuff, raised it back up a bit. Was thinking of changing the rims for something different...definitely a little bigger.

I find that 18s are the sweet spot when it comes to wheel size. You can get away with 19s too, but that depends on the type of look you're aiming for. When it comes to 19s, you would also have to play around with wheel width and offset to not make it look awkward with 19s. Do you have a style you're trying to go for? Maybe the VIP route, aggressive street stance, or the clean fitted look? I'm running the Aspec wheels from a 3G TL and pretty happy with the fitment and look. Here's a picture I found online to give you more ideas:

I would likely stick with 18s for sure. The Aspec wheels does look sweet because I just want to look clean. Thanks for the info Silencer. Someday, we'll have to meet since you are in SF.

Nice car! For me, silver has always been a difficult color to keep a nice deep luster; You've managed to keep it well!
