Yeah, it does sit really well! But the turbines are 16" right? Did you make any modifications to make them fit. I currently have some 15" alloys with winter tires. The tire sides are quite tall (65 mm I think), but there is definately no room for a lowering. The rear bumper is too close to the tire!

Oh! I always thought they were 16". I don't know why, though. That's crazy :lol:  :lol:  My mistake.
Then there shouldn't be any problems lowering my car with some summer tires. MAGNIFICENT :mrgreen:
