Working on a 16 SE. Going to limit my build to brakes, suspension and a good tune. ST wheels are a definite as will be a conversion to a center outlet exhaust (with resonator delete). If it doesn't enhance performance or handeling, it's a waste of money to me.

ST wheels are heavy at 25lbs and wouldnt enhance performance or handling (oem F1 tires arent great either.) I'd call them a waste of money... Fit lighter 17 or 18" after market wheels instead.

If they'd fit on my car, I'd run 17x8 RFP1's all day at 15.8lbs, thats nearly 40lbs of unsprung weight off the wheels alone compared to the ST wheels. That much weight will be noticeable. Fit a 245 tire to them and you'll be in business.

Put your $'s & time towards the suspension......If you were looking for performance, You'd gone w/ a ST to begin with....
