1. most people say the RE-01R is a bit grippier than the R-S2
2. you have a pretty big vagina if you think the R-S2 is loud on the highway. Try an NT-01 sometime, sounds like there's swampers on the car.

1. Okay, my bad, I thought the poster I was responding to meant T1-R. That's a hell of a lot closer to R1R than RE-01R. Yeah, the Bridgestone is a lot more aggressive than the Hankook. Duh.

2. I've used up NT-01s, A032s, PS2s and a few others. So I know what loud and quiet are. What does that have to do with the size of my vagina?

el funny, amigo. el funny. I really didn't think the R-S2s were that bad on the highway, though. Certainly nowhere near the NT-01s.

Enkei RPF1 16X8 and Toyo T1R 245-35-16.

Kosei K1 17X7.5 and Goodyear Eagle F1 245-35-17.

Anything over 245 and it's not gonna be close to working with your speedo or be too tall to fit in the fenders.

do you have a picture of said tire on rim? I have 205/45/16s right now and I want to go to 215/40...but i'm uncertain if it'll look too odd without much profile.

hmm, i'm sure they are recommended for a 8-8.5-9" rim, but wonder if they'd fit on a 7.5" rim

i had 205/45/16 toyo t1r and the falken 452 in the size 215/40/16 are about the exact same height. so it does not look like a super slim side wall because of the 215 aspect you gain some height. so if you look at the 215 40, and a 205 45, the side walls look the same. i would say go for it and get some 215 40. i love them on my miata. The side walls are stiff but the falken 452 are super quite.

funny thing about those falkens, the tire guy that mounted the tires said," it was the worst time he ever had mounting tires because the sidewalls were so stiff". he said it took him over 2 hours to do all 4 and i know it was not BS because when my buddy at sears did them he said the same thing.

I run a 215/40/16 Falken FK451 tire on my 7.5in wheels. Looks great imo, there is plenty of sidewall.

yeah that looks about the same as my 205s, they are a touch smaller in diameter but should match factory sizing.
