I pulled the trigger on a set of 215/45R17 for the Si. Just waiting for them to come in...I got an instant $70 rebate.

I don't get rebates, but am satisfied to drive on tire dump used tires.

Already had Eibach swaybar with bushings. The new ones are even stiffer than the Eibach ones.

What size of sway bar did you move up to and what are your impressions of the move?

Went from OEM 16 to 19 and on the stiffer setting. Added Moog end links and stronger bushing clamps to help. Along with the front upper (Tanabe Sustec) & rear upper (fkx racing) its about as stiff as I want it. Almost feels like it's on rails. Has a slight oversteer to it now.

Have some used low-tread Yokohama Geolanders. While providing longer life than the low treads could be expected to give, braking, handling, & turn-in are sweet.

Probaby going to put the same thing on my 18 Optima. I hate the OEM Kuhmos on it and they're eating tread like crazy. How are you liking them so far?
