If you're not quite ready to make the jump to a new set of wheels, definitely look into getting a set of wheel spacers. These spacers sit behind the mounting face of your wheel and push it outward. Spacers are usually used to create a flush fitment and can look really good even on stock wheels.
Spacers are also relatively inexpensive and easy to install. Just make sure you get a high-quality set. It's definitely worth paying a little more for the increase in safety and corrosion resistance.
It's no secret that lug nuts are a small yet incredibly important part of your car. However, important doesn't mean they have to be boring. Lug nuts can add that pop of color that some cars need to help pull off the theme of their build. We have a ton of different options to choose from.
Everything from colored tuner lugs to spiked multi-piece lugs, there will definitely be a style you like and they're a cost-effective option that adds a little flare to your build.
Last but certainly not least we have a set of coilovers. These replace your factory springs and struts and allow you to adjust your ride height, dampening, and more! For the most part, coilovers aren't super difficult to install but it does depend on the vehicle you're putting them on. This is the best first step to modifying car suspension.
If you're looking for a budget-friendly coilover kit, check out brands like Tein. Their Flex Z coilover kit gives great performance and a great look without having to worry about adjusting everything.
