Not bad, only .2" taller than stock, and 1 lb heavier. I would have gone with the 225 because they're 5 lbs lighter per corner, but to each his own.

How do they feel cornering? Do they feel "sloppy" compared to the 225's? Thanks.

I got the car used and it was like that, but actually I think that rim had the prolem from when I ran over a nail that was like 3 inches long went through my tire, through the sidewall and scraped my rim. Which is why I got new tires, it was an excuse, now I can buy rims too, I am using tires as an excuse. haha

actually they are surprisingly very light, the steering is heavier at lower speeds but feels more stable, especially at higher speed. cornering is much improved, although to truly benefit and make a stiffer sidewall I will have to get 8.5-9" rims, which are soon on the way. Overall I am very happy, oh and you have too keep the pressure higher especially on these g-forces in order to maintain comfortable feel I say 37-40psi front, and 31-33psi rear. I wouldn't put too much on the rear, since it has a lot less weight and will create bounciness.

thanks,
the exhaust is a borla XR-1, 3" with the same 3" adapter to the downpipe. I think the tip is an oval cut, with outer edge of 4".

it sounds very deep, it has a rumble to it. when cold, it's a little higher pitched. with the windows down I love it and outside as well. it is quite loud. on the inside the sound is still pretty loud but the vibration at times can be a little annoying. overall I am very happy with it though. the throaty sound is cool.

fatty... I found that 255/40/17 on a 17x8 fits just fine as far as wheels/tires go. Looks perfect.. much better than 225/45
