Yeah, I did. I did some math and figured out that my 16" wheel and tire combo is only 2% lighter vs the 17" combo, but it is 5% shorter in diameter which makes a noticeable difference in acceleration (and gas mileage). The 15" combo I'm looking at is 6% lighter but only 3.5% shorter vs the 17's so it comes in somewhere in between the two. The road I drive to work is getting kind of bad so I also want to see if the 50 series tires are a reasonable compromise between ride and handling vs the 40 series i currently run. That plus I apparently get bored with my wheels quickly, lol.

Thats correct! LOL long story short. I will be quitting my job and moving back to Japan this summer until school start again. I can afford to keep paying the payments when Im away. But who knows, maybe I can still hold on to it while im there. It will be nice to not have to drive a piece of junk when I come back. haha
