Wow someone who finally has the sense to realize that big rims kill performance! I'm staying with my mr116's they arent to big or to small they are just right and you can fit a good size tire on them too. My hats off to you chase you make a good choice in rims! Not to mention lighter rims might lessen your 60-0 distances.

YES!! It wasn't as much the size as the weight that was a factor. I finally found a actual scientific test they ran and every 3lbs under the suspension is equal to 30lbs above or in the car!! so going from the 18msr wheels to the 16 rotas i cut 8lbs per wheel. so that's 320lbs total equivalent pulled from in car stuff!
