    A wheel improvement ;)

    My classica came with 16x6.5 wheels wearing 195/50 Yokohama Advan Sports. First of all, that's a bit too skinny. Secondly, those wheels weigh 18lbs each despite being so narrow. I bought a set of 16x7 O.Z. Alleggeritas, which weigh 14lbs each, and wrapped them in 205/50 RE-71Rs. I didn't want to put huge wheels and tires on the car because I wanted to keep unsprung mass to a minimum, and I didn't want to over tire the car. I like it's light and nimble feel.

    The new wheels and tires were an improvement. How much so? I tested them out...

    Nah, not going to spend anywhere near the $9k price difference. Besides this way I get the fun of doing it myself.
