I want to use the smart madness springs to lower front .7 / rear 1.3.

I do want to have my brabus wheels widened to stretch tires, and add the madness flares at some point too, though, so I wanted to ask if this is a bad spring choice. (My wheels are the 15/15, not the 15/17.)

I was thinking that I'd have to go with much wider tires, even stretching them, but actually, I really like the look of our stock tires on 7 and 8 inch wide wheels. That's right about the size I wanted to widen the wheels to.

Tyrestretch.com Has a great photo library of a lot of sizes. I tried their app, but it doesn't do me much good, because I will have to do all the widening on the outer bead, an it centers the new rim width to the old.

There's a place up in Renton that gets really good reviews. I think I'm gonna do the wheels before the springs just to be safe.
