Alright, finally took the plunge and went with 22x9.5 Brixton PF10s along with a slight drop via KW. Tires are 275/40 Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 Plus. Attached are pics but click here to see a bunch more.

Ultimately decided on 22x9.5 one piece to balance look and practicality. My options for a one piece were either 9.5" or 10.5" wide, as 10" would have needed to be a two piece. While I liked that look, I live in L.A. and just don't like the idea of a multi-piece wheel on an SUV in these crappy road conditions. I also wanted to stick with the A/S Pilot Sports with a 40 profile sidewall. Jumping to a wider 10.5" wheel w/ 285 or 295 tire would have meant dropping to a 35 profile or switching tire brands altogether.

Suspension is the KW H.A.S. kit with a 1.2" drop. It's definitely a bit stiffer than the stock "S" suspension but I think the ride height looks great and it's very responsive. We also did a driveway test to confirm we don't have any issues clearing the fenders. ?

All in all, very pleased with the outcome and happy to answer any questions.

Flux, How is the ride with the KWs. Some said it was softer than stock and that worried me. I used the H&Rs on my S and it was a decent ride, but the back lowered far too much. So far avoided the temptation of lowering my SVR. I love the way it rides and handles and I'm a bit worried I'd mess it up putting the KWs on there. They are also a bit pricey to just go and try. My son and I would do the install at his shop so those costs would be a wash if I wanted to return it to stock. I'd love the SVR to sit just about 3/4s to an inch lower all around. I also think it would handle a little bit better with that setup.

How tall are your tires? I'm wondering if the 275/40 22 setup is much taller than the 285x35 22. Also what offset are your wheels?

I don't think the ride w/ the KWs is softer than stock at all. If anything, I think it tightens it up more. I'm loving the stance and it seems to stick sharper turns/cornering.

Would need to measure the tire height and check on the offset as they were custom. You're probably right in that they're likely taller than 285x35 22 but, given where I live, I wanted the extra protection from our crappy roads.

Taller isn't bad as long as you don't hit. For the most part a taller tire will help the look by filling the wheel wells a little more. Also, while the car does sit higher it's only marginal and probably doesn't effect the center of gravity much. You also fixed that by lowering it a little. Looks great.

As far as I've been able to tell, they don't hit and it seemed to be fine when we did a driveway test as well. Appreciate the kind words!
