Congrats on your new ride, and welcome.

"Best" depends on what you are looking for. Better cornering? Lowest Drop? Smoother ride?

TRD springs are a modest drop and sharpen the cornering.
Tanabe NF210 are a modest drop and some say make for a better ride.
Tanabe DF210 are a deep drop.
Coilovers are another option but stiffen the ride quite a bit.
Max drop is Air but is $$$.
There are other lowering springs out there too. It depends on what you are looking for.

Not sure about the front camber kits, but so far there is no mass-produced rear camber kit for our rear live-axle cars.

Your rim question is just like your spring question - what are you looking for?

OEM rim size is 16" diameter which offers a good compromise between ride comfort and performance/looks.

Bigger wheels weigh and cost more than smaller ones (more metal) but allow a lower profile tire in the same rolling diameter. Some folks on this forum have gone all the way to 20" wheels. Bigger tires cost more than smaller ones.

Bigger (wheel diameter) / lower profile tires look cool and improve handling but reduce ride comfort since they tend to ride more harshly than stock because they have a shorter sidewall.

Many folks here are running 18x8 aftermarket wheels. Use this Size Comparer to try to stay close to the stock rolling radius to minimize speedometer error:

On the left hand side, click on Shop Rims by car, enter your car, then on the left hand side click on Size Comparer.

Home - Discount Tire Direct often runs package discounts, and they also have a tool to help you visualize your potential new wheels on your car.

Have fun shopping!
