    How to make your CT higher?

    Did anyone try to make your CT higher? Everyday I drove my car I feel even the Accord is 1~2 inches higher than me... just wonder if people can "lowering the car", how to gain few inches higher or make CT like a suv style.

    SUV style? That may be a little much. If you want a few inches, you can increase the tire size or the tire and rim size but you will need to make sure you still have clearance for turning. If money is no object, then you can put on different suspension to raise it.

    Raise your seat? im pretty sure if you measure the distance from ground to underbelly on both cars they will probably be pretty close. I guess my main question is why do you feel the need to be "higher". The CT is not a SUV its a hatchback hybrid, raising it you may lose some MPG(not sure if it will be significant)

    Actually just looked it up, the 2013 accord has 5.8" ground clearance, the CT has 5.7", thats less than .125" (1/8")

    Maybe because I used to drive Toyota Matrix, it got wider, taller, and longer shape of the body. Beside Lexus didn't have any mid-size unless we compare CT - RX - GX.

    I am going to check the rim and tire first.

    Maybe your just not used it? But looking at the specs the CT is almost the same specs as the matrix

    2013 Lexus CT 200h Specs
    2010 Toyota Matrix Specs

    I know i sat in a G35 2DR once and felt it was tiny not sure why, maybe because the seats were large

    How to make your CT higher?-img_3306.jpg

    Maybe because I am a 6' tall guy and I got the old 2007 Matrix. They looks the same, but if you get closer you will see the Matrix is 5" taller. CT is like you get down to the seat. Matrix is like you just sit on it.

    Anyway what is biggest size of the rim and tire I could get?
