Wheels & Tires

Purchased a second set of wheels to be used with summer tires.  The tricky part was finding a set with the correct offset and width so they don't rub.  After a lot of research and triple checking I bought these wheels, they are 7" wide, 16" diameter with a 37 mm offset.  Now that the tires a re mounted and everything installed on the car I can say all that research was worth it because they fit perfect with no rubbing.  The original tires were 195/65 R15, the new Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110 tires are 205/55 R16.  The circumference of the original tires is 78.5" and the new tires are 78.2".  There is a 0.4% difference between the displayed and actual speed, so when the speedo shows 60 I'm actually going 59.8 MPH.  Close enough for me :)

Getting the car to look appealing on the outside is key to getting people to come closer and check out the interior...
