I liked the simpler look of the K1's, as well as the smaller wheel diameter, and larger sidewall.

Digging the looks. But I'm curious how much steering response you've lost compared to stock sizes...if any?

Intercooler I bought from this company for about $130 shipped. Seems to work great for everyday use at 5psi. I'm sure I'll have to redo it once I get som doe for a megasquirt and boost it more. http://www.cxracing.com/mm5/merchant...gory_Code=INCO

I'm guessing your refuring to the width as the overall diameter is almost exactly the same. I thought the front may want to track on the highway as they're alot wider but they ride awesome. I have no complaints what so ever. FYI: I do have a depowered steering rack.

Love the wheels, not the stretched tire though. With that kinda wheel budget, why not run R-comps?
