    Yeah, they aren't pinched at all IMO.

    Ordering mine next week. First MSNE event we go to lets swap cars for a run...I will have Konis and basically the same wheel set up...you have a front sway and i would like to see how that feels before I put one on.

    And mine (225/45/16 Direzza ZII Star Specs) are on the way! Had to sacrifice on the wheels, though, to save a little cash--instead of the Sparcos, I went with closeout MSW wheels at $79/wheel. A pound and a half heavier than the Sparcos, but much lighter than stock wheels--and the rubber is better, too, of course. Plus, I'll probably remain married. Probably.

  5. Note that TR has a $50 rebate now (Visa Gift Card) on the Z2StarSpec if you buy four tires :)

    Actually hadn't seen that--nice! Thanks. You've just extended my marriage by at least a week!

    Just ordered my Dunlops with a set of 16" sparcos should be here by the weekend. I'm going to try and plasti-dip the wheels gold and see how it looks.

    My baby's new shoes arrived today! They're in the corner of the garage, awaiting the first signs of spring. (Or the upcoming Test & Tune, whichever comes first.) Sounds like everyone and their brother is gonna be on Dunlop Star Specs. Although I might know of an exception or two. Looking forward to getting things rolling. <Ahem.>

    Hopefully these will help shave a couple tenths off my times from the stock tires I ran last year ;)

    Now, just got to do something about his weather.....

    I am seriously hoping that between tires, konis and alignment - with possibly a front bar the car comes alive more than last year...at least in HS even if it does not feel like I want it to it will be competitive.

    Just ordered my Sparcos/Z2*s. Just like everybody else. Good thing the cars will be numbered at events so we can tell them apart...

    I bet Tire Rack has a shorthand for the DZ2SS/Sparco combo: FISTAX1.

    Yup I just got my combo plastidipped and mounted yesterday. Can't wait until the next event, so I can try them out!

    Just ordered my 225/45/16 ZII Star Specs on Enkei J10 rims. Should be able to find my car in a sea of Sparcos. Can't wait for spring!

    Looks like I'll be going with the RE-71Rs. Pretty sure 205/45/16...
