LOL
Why do people mod their car period? To make it their own. While I liked the Detroits - no way they can compare to my hyper black RSE12s. Just my .02

I've had plenty of comments on my detroits. I like them mainly for the fact that they're super easy to clean inside with the five big holes.

And that they're easy to apply a coat of wax too... hopefully I'm not the only one who waxes basically everything.

Aftermarket wheels remind me of people who remove badges and put plasti dip on their tail lights.

Need to add a red stripe on the hood, roof and hatch. Don't forget the Buick air vents. Your car will be the SHITZ.

It's all opinion man - the weight reduction on the RSE12s is something you can feel when driving the car. Most of the cars you have shown have it lowered - why lower it? Bc it does provide a benefit and it's your op of what looks good whereas some might feel it's a waste of money ;-)

I ordered some splash guards and I wanna get some lowering springs and drop it about an inch and the car will look perfect! Also those roof racks looks awesome.

Why would anyone ever lower their car - what a waste. LOl
Your statement is proving what everyone has been telling you. You mod or do things bc you WANT to. You lowering the car is exactly like someone getting after market wheels.
