first, here's some pics with the old tires





one with me in the car



i just felt like adding this one in lol



here's a couple with the new tires. i bought the kumho ecsta asx, the ultra high performance ALL SEASON. it's not my first choice, but i figured it's my daily driver and i don't want to have to change tires for the winter and i chose these over the pirelli pzero nero m+s because of the price! [:D] i'm in college, budget gets tight at times.



i upgraded the size from the stock 215/45/17 to 225/45/17. they look more like 50's which they're not but it took away from a little bit of the wheel/fender gap. the front looks pretty nice but at least the back could use a lowering.



going over uneven pavement on highways rubs the tires a bit [}:)]

Worst? I love mine. If I had to replace them I might go with EAP, but they look like a pain to clean. Only downside I see with the 6 spokes is there are parts that are tough to clean (those rectangular divets). Other than that, I love the way they compliment the lines.

Nice pics, notice much difference either way in dry grip? I plan on keeping 2 sets of wheels and tires for my SVT.

yeah i like the way it looks too. kinda wish i got 225/40 so i could lower it with no worries of rubbing. i probably won't even worry about it now though

Looks great, especially with the 04 six spoke wheels! I even prefer them over the EAPs.
