I ahve17x7.5" Motegi's, +40mm offset, with 215/40ZR17 rubber. They have better road grip than stock tires because of softer rubber and more contact patch. They really "feel" the road, though. Rims and tries don't make a huge difference in handling unless you get lightweight rims with some drag radials. Springs, Struts, and Strut Braces are more important. Hope I helped.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Thanks for the post. I guess I have to decide first if a wanna wait a little while and get the 2003 tib before I consider spending any $$$ on my 2001.
I don't know what to do I love my Tib But the 2003 is such a nice car a big upgrade. What to do, what to do????

I'd rather have a ride like the post above yours thana 2003. They're so plain! And 181hp from a V-6? I guess that leaves a LOT of room for tuning!
