UPDATE!!

I finally took some pictures of my Camry. Sorry for such a long delay. Busy making money for more mods :clap:

So here are few pictures. It looks hotter in life then on pics.:naughty:

Struts: Tokico Blue
Springs: Intrax
Rims: 17x7 ADR Revo-6
Tires: Kuhmo Ecsta 711 205/40 R17



Front^

Rear^


Front again^

Rear Again^








Few pictures of the Install:

Cool Reflection picture:


Um... my stock high performance struts? Note: all of the struts were busted except one, that showed SOME sign of life.





More updates:
The rim that was leaking air is not repairable, i took it to two different professional repair shops in Chicago and neither of them could fix it. I'd have to look for another rim somewhere...:(

Hey!
Just dropped my camry this weekend!
It looks awesome! I never thought camry could look so hot. I used Tokico Blue struts and Intrax springs, i'm satisfied with results, it looks so low now. Handling is amazing!
I ran into one problem though... the rims that i put on, i bought them few months ago and never put them on, but today it the tire popped on me on the high way, thank God rim didn't get damaged!
Now i have a dilema.. i need new tires.. what I don't like is that i feel every single bump on the road with my low profile tires - 205/40/17 Kumohs. I was curious if 45's going to make a difference? I don't want go higher because I don't like how rims look with too tick tires, but was curious if with 45's the ride would be a little more softer?
Any clues?

I'll be posting pictures soon of the set up. So stay tuned.

Max

Go Wider

I know in the Gen 4s we can go 225-235mm across. You should look at going wider as well. I'm running a 225/40 18 myself which you can see in pics both on the Solara and Camry. The most accurate (ie speedometer) tires for you (96 LE I4 running 195/70 14 OE) would be a 205/50 17, 215/45 17, 225/45 17, or 235/40 17. Good luck. Jon.

I'm running 18x7.5 with 225/40/18 with a +42 offset. I have coilovers and I tucked the rear in and they fit perfectly. Once it get the rear fenders rolled, I'll probably slip spacers in.

Aren't we getting a little off topic now?

Nice drop, for the tires i hated my 205's, best i've had for my gen4 had been 215's. There are people who tried 225's. 205's just seem too skinny IMO!
Yeah I hate it too. They came with 205's. I'm getting 215's. My ass hurts from driving. I feel every single bump. I'm having problems with finding replacement rim, or else i'd buy tires alright. I might have to sell those rims, if someone would wanna buy of course. I'm kind of screwed there. As soon as I figure it out id get better tires, or better rims:)

Car looks nice dropped. I love black camrys, that sux about u'r rim. I remember when one of my rims on ym old camry was leaking. The prvious owner had put some silicone in the hole or something, I had to get it fixed since getting another rim like that was not possible. It was a discontinued MOMO rims. After going to different places, they all said they couldn't fix it. Then I went to a marine welding shop and they fixed that bitch like brand new.

looking pretty good....a drop is always a good thing :thumbup: but you're always going to have the huge fender gap though due to your tire size


but two things:
why are you running those tires in the winter?
and
why are you tires so undersized in the first place?
did you buy those used? those tires would fit better on a civic.....and it is universal bolt....

even 215/45/17 is slightly undersized, and it still shows a bit of a gap - the only proper way of not having thick tires if you don't like the look is by getting bigger rims

for the camry, you should have either 215/45/17, 215/50/17 (optimum, but less common tire size), or 225/45/17
