yeah, i guess the car has more than youd expect (like any vert). many owners swear that bracing should be before coilovers, and the guy making them is more than likely doing a final run this time. it works similarly to the "butterfly brace" that is available for Miatas

more sticky. these do not need to be all season. something like Advan A048 or some shit would be best. i dont give a shit if i only get 10k out of the tires. but under $200 per tire is preferred.

they only have 205/40-16, 215/45-16, and 225/50-16. none of the sizes i want. FK-452 come in the right sizes in the rear but not front, but ive heard they chunk or something when driven hard.

i guess ill see what lotus guys are running when they're on 16s.
