Change in handeling

I just got my rims on and wow is there a difference. I put on a set of ADR 17's with Falken 225/35/17's and it does not slide. I have had no slidding and less side to side sway. I couldn't be happier, well only if the koni yellows were not on back order........

In fact they are and so far no complaints. I haven't had any problems on dry or hard rain.

Hmm 225/35/17 is a bit smaller than the stock size 215/50/15 ... and how did you manage to fit a 225/35 on a 7" rim? Falken says 7.5" - 9" for that particular tire.
