If you like to see sidewall, that would be a good choice.  If that's what you want to do, getting your speedometer recalibrated is no big deal.  It cost me $80 and the guy caught an issue with my odometer as well.

Another thing to think about is how far you are putting it out.  Discount Tire's website (I think) still has a calculator that tells you how far out you are going to be based on the original tire size and the one you are going to.

For about the first year I changed to my 15s, I just carried the chart around for when I got into higher speeds where it deviated more than 5 mph from where it was supposed to be.

The important thing is to get what you want.

I'm an idiot...  The springs sit on top of the shock so lowering would have little to no effect on the clearence.  Maybe turning in the front, but that is it.

With any brand of lowering spring, you won't have an issue. They only drop 1.5-2".

If you choose the Ground Control coilover kit, then you might run into fender clearance up front, depending on your wheel choice. (the GC kit you can really slam the car)

we need to have a section on this website that answers all of these common questions.  every few months a new person comes on here and asks the same questions. (no offense to the newbies).  

Anthony, I am sure all of the same questions are taking up more bandwidth than posting a section of F.A.Q.'s.  Can we make this happen?

Found a real nice deal on 17s with tires, but will need spacers, as the tires are 215/45r17.  But the deal is too good to pass up.
