i switched to BFG g-force kdw 2's when i got new rims. much better wet traction, not too short about the tread life.

i was thinking of putting some nitto nt01's but dont make a comprable size, so i found some falken azenis or something like that, they look ok.

im going to put some 17's on it though with the nitto nt01 225/45r17 for the track days. im looking for some autocross tracks around here but have not succedded.

since the wheel is flangless i dint know if you can go bigger in tire size with the stock rim like other flanged wheels.
