New wheels

I've had these for a few weeks now, but because of the snow I hadn't been able to keep the car clean for pics. Got tired of damaging my 17" wheels all the time, so I went back to the 15" stock size, with 205/60's. Not too crazy about them but they work well for these streets. I notice a lot of body roll now that the aspect ratio is so tall, but the bumps are much better on the car with this setup. I just got the cheapest package from Tire Rack: Borbet Type S with Kumho ASX's, all for $678. Now, what to do with my 17" setup sitting in the yard . . .

D'ski - ya gotta do what ya gotta do - I think it was a good choice. Either that or a cheap beater right? In Mn the beater is the choice because of the road salt + potholes. It's called survival of conditions

They Look alright on there, gotta switch up wheels for the winter, and I have to agree that potholes suck, Michigan roads blow year round but especially in the winter.
