New tires and wheels. Konig Hypergrams (18/8.5) and Hoosier 255/35/ZR18 R7s. The wheels clear the Brembo calipers without spacers.

Pappy, do you have an estimate of how much weight the Mk3 suspension, knuckles and hubs has added? I think the front knuckle alone adds 6 lbs (18 vs 12 for the Mk1). I know that lightweight parts that don't finish the race don't make you faster, just curious if you tallied the total impact.

I haven't weighed all the parts yet, but it has added some weight, some of it unsprung. I will weigh the components during final assembly and let you know.
