Which one you guys prefer more: replacing all 4 lowering springs or front wheels to 175/55R15?

Best bang for your buck is 4 square - replace skinny fronts with rears.

Lowering springs fill the wheel well gap while improving the handling as a result of slightly lowering the CG.

Lowering springs are amazing. You can take those corners much faster. I'm on crappy tires and still can't loose traction so I really don't see no point in more tire on the smart

I have been looking for what brands of lowering springs are good, either Eibach or Vogtland or H&R...

And I read some comments from this forum saying they are similar and depending on your preference to the brand.

looks like Vogtland springs is pretty good as they drop the car the most, 0.7/1.4"... what do you think?

I'm on vogtland and love them. I feel like the car should've come from the factory like that. Makes the car so fun to drive fast around corners.

I get the vogtland as the brand looks good. The springs drop the car the most comparing to other brands. I am going to install them soon

The springs are now installed... I’m ok happy with that and feel the improvement on cornering... I would be happier if I replace the coilovers as well. But at the end of the day, it is still good enough for the smart car because it’s not for racing 👍👍👍
