how is it different if everyone on CR has the same?

It's something different for me. I change the looks/style. etc., from one configuration to another. I do not claim originality.

No thanks. I was just curious. 6UL's are in my future. I am a conformist. 15x8 black, 225/45 R1R.

That's good, but 225/45 R1R is hardly "comformist"

Default "Regret"

This post is titled "regret".

After having CCW's on the C5, followed by ATS's and 6UL's on the Miata, these wheels are a real disappointment, but to be expected. Heavy and a bit ugly.

More fail- These tires still skip, dance, and walk at 70+ mph with MAYBE 300rwhp. Kinda spooky feeling the back end sliding around at 70+.

What about going back to the 15x9's with the 225/45 RS3's up front and 15x10's with 235/50's in the back? The 225/45's in back look retarded and leave me shifting gears constantly. Its like driving a truck.

Dual bolt pattern wheels irritate me. I bought the wheels/tires for long distance highway driving. I bought a 2013 Elantra Limited a few weeks later, so the car only gets driven around town. Why not have sticky tires around town? I got walked by a new 5.0 out of the hole and had to play catch up.
