Eibach pro-kit with 20" wheels

Hello everyone,
By any chance any of you have pictures of 20" wheels with eibach pro kit? I currently have BC coilovers but to be honest I'm tired of the quality of drive with them. I have tried different setups and i even got Swift springs for the rear and still the same bad harsh drive.

I had the Eibach Pro Kit for about a month before I switched to coilovers. The progressive spring rate on them can't handle the front end weight and your ride will be much worse, even after you cut bump stops. On 20" wheels Pro Kit will be a nightmare. Try having your BC's tuned first, that's your best bet.

I've got 20's on mine with the Prokit, they fill in the wheel well pretty good. Tires are 245/35/20, hope this helps

Hi. Your exact setup (eibach springs with 20 inch wheels) was actually something I had sort of decided on (love how it looks) but I am not sure because I want my car to be super comfortable. I hear so many different things.
Is your car comfortable with those spring and larger wheels? Or super bumpy?
I'm no concerned about handling or racing or anything like that. I just use my car as an everyday car but I want to change up the looks.

Tbh, it's not bad after the springs settle, it was rocky in the beginning tho. But then again my tires are 35 so I feel every little bump, gonna move up to 40's soon at least for the rears.

Wow I really like the fender change. I want those lol. See I have heard the pro kit is basically as comfortable as stock. Is that not the case? Is the larger wheel that made it bumpy? Or the tires? Is there a different tire size (for instance the 40 you mentioned) that would make it more comfortable? Sorry I know literally no nothing about this stuff but I am dying to modify my car.

Hey I was just wondering what the width and offset of your 20" wheels was? Ever have any rubbing issues? And did you have to roll the fenders at all? Sorry to revive an old thread I was looking at a similar wheel and tire setup for my eclipse and I also have Eibach prokit lowering springs.
