    scratch the cup 2 option, not our sizes. Not even the newer Cup 2 R.

    Kuhmo ACR tires (rear) are EXCELLENT, bytheway. On par with the Michelin Cup 2, that I had on my Porsche. Problem is on a gen 3 stock wheels you can't have the matching front size. I went with a pair...

    You're limited if you plan to lower the car though. I lowered roughly 0.75'' (20mm) but it scrubs at the rear passed that with my Kuhmo ACR's, and it scrubs too on the front with full steering turn...

    slightly more responsive (on my gen3) probably not more than a 4-5 whp gain but per dollar spent it's a no brainer, unless you need your alternator to spin at full normal speed
