YOU choose which wheels/tires I use!
So long story short I have two sets of wheels to choose from. A bigger 17X7 set that I dont like the look of and a smaller 16X7 set that I really like the look of. I've gone back and forth and I can't seem to come to a decision myself. So i've left it to the masses to decide the good ol' American way. A vote!
So here they are: Enkei OR52 with Toyo Proxes 4 and ASA AR1 with Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3. Here are the pro's and con's of each.
Enkei OR52 with Toyo Proxes
~100% tread life
~Not much road noise
~Bad traction in wet and spirited driving
ASA AR1 with Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3
~Good Traction tires
~Lower ride hight
~Increased Wheel Gap
~High Road Noise
~Lowers Ride Hight
Should I go for the one's I dont like the look of but fit the wheel gap or the ones that I like that are smaller but create massive wheel gap?
This is only until I get the $ to get some new 17" tires, a set of wheel that I like and some lowering springs. That might not be until the end of summer.
