Does anyone have 16" wheels on their '02? wondering what it looks like or how they fit, wanted to lower the car also.

Most ppl seem to think +1 (14") is about the best, what it all comes down to is what will fit with tyres and not rub. Rolling fenders is required too if you get too wide.

As for lowering, there's a whole bunch of spring choices (H&R, Eibach, ST, BavAuto, etc...) any of them lower the car about .5" to 1.5". The first thing of course is to remove the spacer on the front struts if it hasn't been done already.

Unless your shell has been extensively reinforced, don't use big wheels. Not having compliance from your tires, will require some flex from somewhere. usually it is the shell that gives it, and cracks.

...all have front and rear strut/shock tower braces, not to mention full cages. With the exception of the firewall and the tacked on nose, there is very little to counter torsional (twisting) forces.

I used to run 15's on my old 2002. They were great, theyd tunk in the back and only rub when i hit a big bump fast. I think 16's would be too big and cause problems. Not sure if that would look good either.
