For me personally other than the additional road noise and could very well attribute to the tires I'm running, I am really quite happy with the overall ride quality. You certainly can tell it's lowered and there is less sidewall, but overall I have no complaints. Not to mention makes the car so much more fun to drive. Even though these wheels are light especially for their size, my only downfall is I took about a 5-6mpg hit. Struggle to stay at about 41mpg's. Well worth it for me as I couldn't be happier with the way the car looks. Let me know if you have any other questions. I'd be happy to answer them.
