I did some research yesterday & found weights & 25 lbs is right for a 225/50-16 MX. I did some comparison shopping, weights, & pricing on Toyo T1-S, Kumho MX, & Falken Azenis in 16" sizes.
I put it all in a spread sheet with various sizes available for each tire, their load capacities & gearing effects on the car. I really want to splurge & get the Toyo T1-s's (they have the perfect size to give me the gearing I want), but the Kumho's & Falkens are so cheap it's hard to justify. Plus I want to lower my gearing So Falken & Toyo are my only options, but then you get in to max load issues & well... Anyway I'm glad I spent the time.

Good choice... PM me if you could on what you paid for the wheels I will be looking to get some soon & I'm hoping to get a better price than $450 + shipping, if possible. I've seen some GB's for other cars in the same size in the mid to upper 300 range of prices.

Thanks - Jon
