I have BC coilovers on mine, it's lowered a good 2" and I have no complaints about clearance or ride quality. The coilovers allow adjustable damping and ride height. I clear speed bumps and don't scrape pulling into my driveway, the ride on the freeway is just a little more firm than stock with the setting I use (Set at 15 on a range of 1 to 32, 1 being the hardest). The only "problems" are, as mentioned above, potholes. With this setting the potholes can be pretty jarring, but shouldn't be an issue with a softer setting, IMO.
I do have to be more careful pulling into parking lots and such as if I take the dip too fast then it will scrape, so slow and easy pulling in and out is key. Small compromise for a huge difference in looks and handling, IMO.
Personally, I would lower it first and then do wheels so that you can make sure you have enough clearance, particularly when turning.
