    I'm guessing the the driveability isn't that good with the skinnies. Probably more for the track huh? How is it on the street though?

    I drive it to and from the track. 25 miles each way...mostly highway.
    Occasionally a show.
    Just have to be careful.

    Otherwise I have the TTII's on it.

    TTII's are quite heavy. 27 pounds for the 17x11's if I recall.....which is 7-8 pounds more than stock.

    I run 18x8.5f and 18x10 R with 245/40 and 275/35. They Kumho's I have suck for hook but I'm going 285/35 rear with a sticky summer tire. The rims look good with the BMR springs, KYB AGX's lower out. UMI dbl adj panhard and LCA's w/ relocation brakets keep the rear in place and the Spohn sway bars handle the corners.
