what size are those wheels

Those are some radically low profile tires. Do they have much give to them? Or do they ride like hockey pucks? I still consider a 60 series a low profile tire. I must be getting old.

Actually, there not 60 series.....they're 40 series Yokohama AVS Sports. The ride is super smooth and they have nice give to them. Haven't had any issues whatsoever. I'm real pleased since I purchased them about 6 months ago.

What's really cool about those wheels is that it looks like there is room for alot more brake in there. I've never riden on 40 series tires! That car must corner like its painted to the road!

Tires made a huge difference. Obviously, any upgrade from stock is good. These work perfect. I'm not a speed racer with the car. It's just a very nice E320 cruiser. Also, it's lowered with Eibach springs and it does great taking corners now, again, as compared from stock springs.
