Hows the RS look with 18s on it? Any pics? Probably gets better MPG also! Does it throw off the speedometer at all?

The tires are working very nicely...and they look great. None of the 17" rims I tried fit, only a few 18" do. Yes, the 95W stands for 95 lbs., which is how much weight the tire can support and the W for the 168 MPH, the maximum speed a tire can sustain under its recommended load capacity.

They look great, my car is black with the blue accents, the rims have some blue and they match well. I haven't felt any difference while driving.
No good pictures but I'll attach a couple so you can see them. Let me know what you think.

I just bought four Michelin Pilot Alpine PA4's for my winter setup, I use an extra set of ST OEM premium 18" rims as a dedicated winter wheel package but I also drive a ST, not a RS. If youd like Id trade you my 17' ST for your 17'RS???? :)

It looks great! But do the 18 wheels have spacers to clear the calipers? How does that work? BTW, the RS in Black looks fantastic with the blue badges!
