Azeni RT-615's Are Here!

Oh, how I love to come home and see something new stacked up outside the shop!
Yes, the new Falken Azeni Rt-615's have arrived.
The perfect compliment for the new KYB AGX's.

========================
They have one last quality assurance test to pass though...
"The Labrador Sniffing Test"...yes...yes...I believe they approve.
Now, to keep Auggie Doggie from peeing on them.

FYI:
225/45/17 to be mounted on stock 04 SVTF wheels.
Stock springs. No drop.
More to come...

But, surprisingly, they aren't really any taller.
Especially considering there's absolutely nothing left of the Hankooks.

Left:
Hankook R-S2 215/45/17
Outside of tire is on left.

Right:
Falken Azeni RT-615 225/45/17
Outside of tire is on right.

I just picked them up from being mounted.
They do look a bit narrower now that they're on the rim.
Anxious to get home and check fitment.

I still can't believe how wide they are.
I looked closely at focusedaddiction's RT-615s in 215/40/17.
Pretty much the same width, if not a hair narrower than the Hankooks.
That's the main reason I opted for the 225s, to get some more width.
But now I'm thinking...
The 215s run a bit narrow (or "normal"), and the 225s run a bit wide.

Yes, I'm praying right now I don't have any rubbing problems.
In all the reading and conversations I've had (thanks Carrera26),
there seems to be a 50/50 split with that size between rubbing or not rubbing.

Stay tuned.

Oh, y2kpedo...no problem on the SVTF rim fitment.
