      Where did you get the whitewalls and what size are they?

      that's a rip off.

      go to the source for cheaper prices:

      nice score on the original plates was never a fan of your european "tourist" plate...but that's just me

      Measured from when I got it ("stock" height) dropped 6" in the front and 4.5" in the rear. I'd have to dig through my notes to be sure of the change in ride height
