    Thin, low rolling resistance - your comment made me think about the i3 I saw on the road the other day and I immediately thought about them being rubber-wrapped wagon wheels (155/60/20)
    Madness,
    I wasn't expecting any exact impact on range, I know you are also making other changes that might also impact range, but I was hoping for at least some idea. Probably not going to get even an inkling from 5-10 mile drives. Oh well, no harm in asking, right?

    ANY change you make to stock tires BESIDES going thinner, LRR tires will negatively impact range.
    That's my point.

    We now have it dialed in and have put a new set of custom springs for the 500e in to production. They will offer a nice drop yet retain a decent ride and improve the handling.

    This weekend, we installed the DNA Racing Component's Top Mounts:

    How much lower does it make the car? I already scrape here and there. I wonder if this will make it super hard to drive around LA.

    Thanks

    I had been asking the owner about that as well, he began explaining it to me when he suddenly just stopped and said "You know what, let's go for a ride!"

    500 MADNESS as most of you know is right in the middle of what some what may call a small industrial area in Signal Hill. There's quite a few rough roads, dips, construction and even some nice roads. Let's just say we took her for a spin with some enthusiasm and the only thing I could hear were the tires searching for traction on initial acceleration and my phone going off as I received text messages - This vehicle is incredibly quiet right out of the box, but even after lowering it close to 2" there is no scraping. We haven't experienced any bottoming out, scraping or anything along those lines.

    Hope that helps

    My car is SCREAMING for some nice black wheels.

    What are my options for remounting same tires on better looking wheels?

    Next would be a combo of wheels and tires at a moderate price. I am looking for a cosmetic change.

    I already have a car that eats through $1800 tires every other month. No. I am not joking. LOL.

    What would look good on my car? Range isn't an issue for me.

    Have you looked into putting Plasti-Dip on your rims to make them black?

    Sorry we took so long to respond DaveN007, we had to pick ourselves back up off the ground after you said you were running through $1800 tires every other month! As far as remounting the same tires, are you still on the factory 15 inch wheels? If you are, I would highly recommend just going up 1-2 inches to a "16 or "17.

    Another option - If it's easier, give us a call at 888-993-7552 and speak with our Sales Manager Joseph at extension 108 or shoot him an an email JReyes@MADNESSAutoworks.com.

    They would look like a black disc. But good suggestion.

    Will do.

    My Z06 has seen a lot of track days since I got it. SuperSports and Cup2s last 4-5 days. I need to move to slicks or decide which child doesn't get to go to college.

    How much does a setup like that cost with install? I live fairly close to signal hill. I just worry I can't make it back home after I get down there. haha I'm coming from Arcadia area.
