Adios, David
ok i joined for some h stock info and ive been heavily researching this.

Id run the hooiser a6's kumho 710s or victoracers. they are all good, they heat up quickly and they are good for dry grip.

tires like the yokohama a048s and bfgoodrich gforce and michelin sport cups etc... all take too long to heat up and respond at better at higher tire temps 160 degrees and beyond. by the time you achieve that temperature your runs are done. def look into a good auto x tire dont settle on azenis unless your on a budget.

16s in a 205 45 16 should do you or a good 205 50 15 I think should be fine.

street/auto x I feel the yokohama s drives or the azenis will be fine... if your serious about autoX pick up a second set of wheels and let it rip!

---------------------------------------------------------
konis are legal as long as theres no more then 2 adjustments and im pretty sure just dampening and non ride height or spring pre load works. someone correct me if im wrong.
