1. If I got a set of 16" TSW Blades without tires for free from a friend, they were off of an old jetta. One of them has a big curb mark/dent (no metal is gone). My question is, can I bondo the dent and paint them black without having problems? I was told I could, and since the wheels are free..... I just wanted to know if it will affect the balance? But then I was thinking it shouldnt affect the balance if it is balanced properly with the correct amount of weight, and since the dent is not that big. I just wanted everyones info on that. The tires that are going to be on it are Kumho ECSTA ASX.
2. I want to buy the Eibach spring kit, but I am not sure which one to buy. Some places online sell both kits (proline and sportline)for the same price ($216.33). I am puting 16" wheels on my car with 205 40's on them. And upgrading my shocks to TOKICO Illumina's. So what kit would everyone recomend for best look/ride quality/handling.
Proline kit lowers my car aprox: F-1.4 R-1.2
Sportline kit lowers aprox: F-1.6 R-1.6
1. I would just buy one new wheel then. If the dent or crack is bad enough the tire will not hold air PLUS if you hit another pothole or bump you could loose the tire off the rim - is it worth it?
Also the tire size you want is not the right size for your car. You would want 205/45x16" to keep your speedo and odometer accurate. Going to a 205/40x16" would make your speedo look faster than you are actually going (if I remember right). I had 215/40x16" and my friend was going 80mph and my speedo indicated 95mph.
2. You don't want the Proline kit. It hardly looks like a drop. I had it on my 00 Civic back in 2000 and it wasn't much. Go for the Sportline kit. Here's a pic with ProLine:
