Thanks. My rule of thumb is to change the stock wheels no matter how nice they look. I dont want to have the same wheels as tens of thousands of people. Since these cars are slow, the best we can do to make them stand out is do tasteful mods in handling and appearance. Keeping stock rims, IMO are better for the sports cars or luxury cars. Our cars are economy cars than can be driven for fun during commute if it handles well. I bought this for my commute of 33k mi a year, so I know what the car is and isnt. The tires I got are made by Omni, they are starting off like Kuhmo did. The tires handled way better than the stock Toyo Proxes. Sometimes its not about the brand but looking at the specs of the tire. These are XL tires meaning they are reinforced more for lowered and performance cars, give better road feedback, provide extra traction, and allow heavier loads in the car, higher speed ratings, and more.Glad you like them, they look huge to me and too big for my taste. I personally love the OEM wheels I'm not too concerned at looking at new wheels. I might upgrade the tires though as I would like some extra grip. I've never even heard of the tires you bought. I have some Michelin Pilot Super Sport A/S 3 tires on my Corolla and they are amazing and are top rated by many reports and comparisons.New to the forum, after 10 days of ownership spent $2000 on upgrades. So heres the fitment upgrades.
