    Hmmm. Thanks for the pics Andrew, they seem to look a little pudgey on the 6.5" rim. Do you get that impression at all in person? I've been thinking of going with that size but it just seems wrong in my mind for some reason haha. Talk me into it please! I don't want to buy expensive 17" wheels to keep the low weight and get the right offset.

    Thanks Chris, I already looked that information up but I still feel funny about it. I guess I'm just trying to suppress my hick heritage and the old stickonabigol'raisedletterfiddyseriesan'at'llmake' erlookgood advice.

    I took the photos to try to show as much of difference as possible. Unless you are lying right next to the car it really hard to see the difference. THe rim protector on the tire is what seems to overlap the wheel - but it is supposed to do that!!!

    The side walls are STIFF. They are a really solid ride and great cornering - no decernable flex in hard cornering despite the higher profile than a 17 or 18" wheel.

    Thanks Andrew, I was hoping it was the photography giving it a fuller appearance than I would have in real life. Guess I should pull the trigger and go order some new tires!

    side shot?

    attn: aussieinstlouis (Andrew)
    do you have a straight on side shot of your car? I'm interested in this exact setup but I want to see what it looks like from the side. I'm assuming you are on stock suspension?

    TIA

    Light has beaten me again this evening - will get the pics tomorrow. From the side is almost indistinguishable from stock as the diameter is identical.

    I have stock springs and struts but 22mm front, 22mm rear sway bars and an ALK.
