Well a update... As I was about to get the Dunlops from TireRack and I somehow got sidetracked and ended up buying a set of 15x7 Sport Edition wheels wrapped in some Kuhmo AST rubber.
Completely the opposite direction I know, but think about it.
RE-11's just dropped in price from $160 (16") to $110 or so for the 15's.
I can use the 16's for around the town, and 15's for auto-x. So I'm not cruising and racing on the same rubber.
The 15's are 16lbs, which ain't great, but it's 4lbs lighter then stock 16's iirc.
