Remembered this thread yesterday and figured I'd revive it since I know a lot of people have made changes in the last year.

Here's my setup before the current tires I have. New pics once I'm done playing.

17"x7" BBS RZ's et37
BF Goodrich 205/45/17 g-force Sport Tires
KW v1 Coilovers
Texas Speed Werks Front Camber Plates
H-Sport Lower Rear Control Arms
25.5mm H-Sport Competition Rear Sway Bar

Not sure if the R56 is allowed as all I'm seeing are R50/R53's, but here it is anyway.

Well here's one of my R55 JCW.

H&R RSS coil-overs - ALTA lower control arms - stock sways - JCW front strut tower bar - Konig Feathers 17x7 - Falken 205/40-17 Want a rear sway bad along with some different tires. For a more perfect track setup, I think stiffer springs in the rear would help as well. These rear springs keep settling more and more as you can kinda tell in the bottum pic. This will be a 3rd time I've had to raise them, haven't touched the front since installation.

Bad pics, I know... old camera phone.

All stock non Sport for comparison

Click the image to open in full size.

H&R springs, 17x7.5 et38, stock 205/45 Contis

Click the image to open in full size.

VMaxx coils, same tires as above. (same alignment too..need to take care of that)
Not set at the bottom, but probably 8-10 threads from.. i forget

Click the image to open in full size.

Also could go for the pic above are BC BR Coilovers. Just to note these have a much larger body and the lower collar is right at the tire, so wheel / tire choice can be limited... Need to stay at least an et40 with 'normal' sized tires. Oversized on stock rims just will not cut it, and 'normal' sized on stock rims should be very very close

I believe that's Hyper Blue. But yeah, you're right; there are about 5 trillion shades of blue!
