I had my Goodyear 245/45/20 tires mounted on my new rims, balanced and put on the car yesterday. I like 'em, I like 'em a lot! I've had 3 positive comments on them in 24 hours.

They do make the ride a little more sensitive to road conditions. No change on really good pavement, but moderately more sharp on rougher roads. I'm already getting used to it. There is just a little more 'slop' around the outer most part of the hub on these than there was on the stockers. I may put hub centric rings on it. There is just the slightest bit of vibration in the steering wheel around 70-75. I only notice really because there was ZERO vibration with the stockers, even at higher speeds. Not sure yet. The performance shop mentioned a place that did balancing with the wheels on the car that I might try first. I do get a 'stickier' sensation on corners, though I'm not going to romp it until I've had the torque checked and put 2-300 miles on them.

Anyway, I'm sure they're not for everybody, but take a look and let me know what you think. You can change the picture size to original at the bottom of the picture if you want a closer look.

nice wheels, man
I like the color matched stripe -- sure not for everyone, but that is what makes the world go 'round.

Neat photo location too ---- from the link, it looks like you took some 'before' pics there too.

Freudian slip? Nah, brain fart. Thanks for pointing that out. And yeah, PBASE is a great photo site. I'm an amatuer photographer, there are some professionals that post stunning work on that site.
