I have a 99 dx hatch now and i had two questions. It is going to be a daily driver and i plan on doing a turbo ls swap in about 2 months, but first i would like to get some 15" rotas and some lowering springs. I just want enough drop to fill the wheel wells and ride smooth. I'm not looking for autox or drag stuff, i just want to ride smooth only a little bit lower. SO......

A.What size wheels should i get? 15"x 6.5" or 15"X7"

B. What are smooth riding springs that will lower my car nicely around the new wheels and tires?

for simple daily driving,i would go with the 15x6.5s with 195/50/15s... youll spend a little less per rim and per tire... they will be a little lighter than the same wheel/tire in a 15x7 205/50/15... they will look the same.... you arent going to notice any real difference in normal driving

the Neuspeed sport springs with KYB AGXs is decent inexpensive street setup

the combo of springs and shocks is what gives you a good ride. Generally, just springs will give you a much rougher ride.
