    I have a 2001, and I plan to lower it on Ksport coilovers. I know I'm going to roll the fenders, but, should I go for 15x8 or 15x9 wheels?

    Depends, 8 should be plenty wide for the car, but do the 8 and 9 look different? IE different spoke curvature or deeper lip.

    I'm currently running 15x8's right now. It's going to take a bit of work to fit my 16x9's. I say play it safe and go 8's and see how you like it. When you're ready you can always upgrade to 9's.

    They're Rota RKR, 15x8, et0. Looks the same, really. Also, with the fender rolling, should I take out the plastic wheel well liner?

    I didn't take out mines. I just got a razor blade and cut as much as I needed, problem solved.

    I don't know why everyone jumps straight to a 0 offset, but if that's what you have/really want, you'll definitely need fender work, and you can trim the liners or just take them out entirely. I have 16x8 +15 but I'm already bored with them. Planning on a 17x9 next.

    Alright, kickass.
    Sorry if I'm bumping the thread, but what about tires?
    It will be lowered on Ksport/D2 coilovers, I guess 15x8 wheels with an offset of 10.
    I hate super low profile.

    It all depends on how low you will be going, and how much work you're going to put into your fenders. I personally like the way a 205/40 looks on an 8 inch wide rim. A little bit of a stretch, but nothing retarded.

    Make sure you've got low enough profile on the tires! I'm running on 195/45 R16 tires on 16x7 rims, easy fitment on a 1.25" static drop.

    I really do like the idea of 205/40R15 on 15x8.
    I am doing a static drop, but yeah.
    I don't know how much yet.
