I was very surprised how easy the car is to drive with that much rubber. I can see how the power steering dampens the feel of the car. There is almost no resistance. I went on another short trip and even in small parking areas the tires did not add any more effort than I remember.

This might explain why only one wheel has some rub on the under plastic.

Just hunting on ebay. I think gtfour77 is selling his set. I thought about trying to find an extra somewhere for just that reason.

Whenever you decide....I think in the mean time I will run the sportmax in the rear with the 275's and then use the new fn01rs's on the front with 315's...it'll be an interesting look... Although I am sure the celi won;t be ready for autocross after he holidays... :doh: Also Josh, I will have a set of nice H&R 15mm spacers for sale once the wheel fitment is confirmed....and also 25mm 5x100 spacers as I will need to go to an adapter from 5x100 to 5x114.3 in the rear.... All these things will be going on ebay after a while...

I will need to go to a 5x114 adapter in the rear myself when the time comes. Already have a 25mm in the rear.

I am not going to do the hub change for a while though. I have too much going on for the next bit.

Going to canada, malaysia, doing an art show, opening up a new store, finishing a web project for a client and fixing that damn code 54. I should be busy for the next bit and extra car projects other than making it run right go on the back burner.
