Got some new shoes

I got some 15x6.5 Konig Heliums with Kumho ecsta 205/55/15s. The handling upgrade from the stock 14" 185s is FANTASTIC. BTW, I got the package from buywheelstoday.com and they were really great.

the stock 14" steelies are FS if anyone is interested. I'm in SC. The tires probably have 5-10K miles left on them. I just want em out of the garage.

I'm sorry but from that angle they look like 205/65r15 not 55 series...IMO, I would have done 205/50r15 but to each his own be prepared to kill corners hehe....

Drop's not coming until summer, and I didn't want the tires to look so tiny in the wheel wells (plus those tires screw up the speedo more).
