Haven't been doing much with this car lately. Got an alignment before leaving for Georgia, something went wrong with it because I ended up chewing up the rear tires and got back and realigned it and it showed it was out of alignment... Weathers been nice so I've been riding the Ruckus more than I have driven this. But here's another one from SoWo.



I've got no plans for this thing at the moment. It's probably just going to sit as is and not get much love other than washing and driving it.

Sean,

Was there a reason why you chose 215's instead of 225's or even 235's for your winter tires?

It's 215 the OEM size for the 17" wheels?

I believe you're right that 225 45 is stock for 17s, but the tires I wanted weren't a high enough load rating in that size, and Discount Tire wouldn't sell me anything with a load rating under what their computers said, so we went with the nearest size, 215 50. Really, with snow, you want a narrower tire anyways, that's why I didn't go wider, because that would have just hurt snow performance.
