    Final choice summer shoes installed with pics

    Hi All

    I decided against big lipped 19's and went with a light weight wheel from MSR
    weighing in at 21.4lbs in 18"
    Rubber around Michelin Super sports
    In
    235/40/18
    I'm saving 14lbs per corner getting rid of those run flats. I can't believe how heavy they are. Wow.60 lbs of reduced rotational weight is big.

    Is there much difference in the ride and/or handling? Does it feel any quicker?

    Noticed today my rearend under WOT felt more attached to the road the my old RF tires. ,ride is quieter .
    I'm in Toronto and ambient road temperatures are too cold to push my tires just yet.
    Piot Super sports are supposed to be quiet.

    They are $172 each here: http://www.carid.com/msr-wheels/045-...FSRxQgodSV4ALw I think I've seen them for a bit less. I don't think they come in wider than 8".

    It's smart what you did with the tire width. Going up to 235 got you a little more sidewall as well and helped fill in the wheel well better. Only a small difference in the speedo.
