Rays TE37 on a roadster. Yay or nay?

About to put a deposit down on a set. I haven't seen too many of these on a roadster. What does everyone think?

Very few people modify roadsters, even fewer modify them to the extent necessary to have a proper stance

If you want to be unique in that respect, go for it

bear in mind you'll need to get an aggressive size, coilovers for the right height, and supporting arms

on a stock suspension/stock body, its probably gonna look like crap

Will be installing Tein Flex Z coilovers with EDFC, supporting arms and eventually lip, skirts & rear half spoiler of the Varis Arising kit.
I'm nearly due tires so for the time being they'll be on at stock height and no body modifications.
Short term pain for long term gain though!

Before paying for wheels, read this:

Wheel Fitment 101: START HERE

The most high profile modified roadster is probably the AIMGAIN demo car:



it has airbags and their own wheels

Thanks for that link, very informative.
I've been quoted for 19x9.5 +25 and 19x10.5 +12 by the Rays dealer here so same specs as the white coupe in that link.

If you're gonna lower the car and spend $$ money on good suspension and nice wheels you may want to go more aggressive. I am waiting on wheels now, my OEM 9.5/10.5 Alcoa wheels look super sunk once the car gets lowered.

Front is actually a 22 offset, not 25.
