If anything I'd run bigger tires. Cause they don't make a drop big enough to clear that wheel gap. Lol. I had 18's and a 40 series tire with a 2" drop and it didn't rub.

oh i beg o differ my good man. i had the same size wheels and tires on my first beretta and dropped enough to fill the gap. granted i had to go over speed bumps at an angle and take the long route around railroad tracks. the old sayin goes......."if you cant draggit.....you a faggit"

(no offense to anyone with an alternative lifestyle)

in my dumb teenage years i made three attempts to lower it. the first try was by heating the springs with a torch. it was so low i had to make a path around my house since i could turn at certain angles. ALWAYS had to park by the curbs in the city; parking lots were out of the question. that particular st of tires lasted about 2 months. then i did the diy cut job in my cousins garage. we snatched the springs and started cutting coils. we all know how that ended. i got 4 months out of those tires. i finally saved a little a bought a lowering kit. it wasnt as low as i wanted back then but it looked great. lessons learned.

not sure how i am going to do it. but it will be the RIGHT way. i havent researched it much yet.

Well your killing tires because of a bad alignment. Going low wont kill tires.

As you know cutting and heating are bad. Lowering springs are better, but they don't go very low. To get low in a beretta you gotta get custom

have a shop that makes springs make a set for the beretta. off course it will be a one off set and may be expensive.

iirc weba had some springs made for his car but the prices probably wouldn't be comparable since he's in Finland.
