We have seen this on some of the other threads, it's just a matter of going through some of the most recent threads and you will have your answer. I put 20's on mine and lost about 10% of the ride. Lowering this beauty would really compromise the stabilitrack and make for a very hard ride.

Do you think the one in the picture is stock height?

I hate to answer a question with a question, but why would you want to know? You're not seriously thinking of lowering your XLR, are you?

If your handle implies what you do for a living, I suggest you run some data or look into the data on this vehicle before lowering yours.

I put twenty's on my XLR with low profile tires and realize that a lost about 20% of the nice ride. Fortunately we have good roads out hear in la la land and I don't rely notice it much.

I would never lower an XLR or any late model car under warranty.
I am curious if that one is lowered or just looks low due to the wheel and tire combo..

It's probably due to the low profile tires. See my photo's. You might like the Foose rims on mine


Your car looks awesome. Really nice choice. I would love to see a pic with the tires not turned so you can see how it fills the wheel wells.

I will take that under advisement and first opportunity will post some new pics with the top up and the wheels straight. It does fill the wheel wells just as the stock ones do, based on the same dimension/circumference of the new rims and the low profile tires.
