i love the look of the 16's on the later moder cars, better then 15s and more DD friendly then 17s+. How do the tires fit? I'm getting ready to stick a set of 205/55-16s on myself.

very nice wheels man. i just have one question...why only one rain gaurd for your windows? haha
Thanks and only one rainguard since I'm usually alone in the car, and they're HUGE, so I only wanted to install the one for ME ... lol

The tires fit perfectly ... and she handles GREAT on my local curvy road that I recently started using every day to go to work and back ... speed limit on it is 25-35 but it's so much more fun at 55-60 ... lol

Those are possibly my favorite Motegi wheels evar. Good choice.
Thanks man ... I love them so far [:)]

Thanks Giancarlo ... I considered Continental tires (Extreme Contact or something like that) when I was looking into 17's, but once I decided on the 16's, I really didn't have many choices in the 215/50R16 size ... Tire Rack lists 4 tires ... when I compared them, the Kumho was one of the lightest and had best customer reviews overall ...

Thanks man ... just received the black lugnuts tonight, so I should have them swapped out soon ...

Yeah, The Kumhos are good tires too, don't get me wrong. :D
I think they come with the factory with Kumho tires here in Canada, I remember when I rented a 2010 SES it came with them.
