When you say "standard", are you refering to the 7/6 setup? I have driven mine for a couple of weeks with the current setup at 4f/10r and thought it was quite livable as far as ride comfort goes. That is part of the reason I didn't think the 10/10 set would be that bad. I have the desire to have the car setup very tight for the street, as most of my driving is freeway / higher speeds. I generally run a 215/45/17 tire in the non-snow months, so that takes care of sidewall flex. I will try this with my winter wheels (16") and see what the ride is like before I order my new summer wheels, though.
