..i finally got around to start the thread....some pics-the tires completely rest on the splash guard-will probably remove all... when comletely lowered the front lower edge of bumper is 2 inches from ground....lowest point of side skirt is 1.5 inch from ground and rear bumper lowest point is 3 inches off the ground....exaust and oil pan barely touch the ground....last pic is my attempt to fit the wheel -which i think still seats on the inside of fender....will take car tomorrow to my friends body shop to pull all sides and sort any rubbing issues......wheels are 20x9 (235/35/20) 20x10 (245/35/20

Very very nice. This car looks great. Not a fan of the wheel well's lighting but that is still one amazing looking W140.

Toe out.

I noticed on lowered Mercedes that the wheels get extreme toe out.Do your tires wear bad on one side?
Or do you just lower car when parked?
