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!

if your looking for a little better handling after the drop, consider adding/upgrading the rear sway bar. it makes a big difference!
Actually our SE doesn't even have a rear sway stock!!! So i have no rear sway to upgrade lol but i have been thinking about adding one!
