Thanks guys for the feedback.
"Chief".....I'll deal with YOU later! You KNOW that 'no bamboo' makes for a VERY grumpy Panda. Yes, even GRUMPIER than normal!
Got my OEM rears to put on the front yesterday, but I've been busy running errands and stuff this AM and now that I have the time, it's warming up and RAINING. But I hope to have them on either later today or tomorrow AM.
I'll post some pics to show the difference in stance, clearance, etc. I'm doing it in hopes that it improves the ride on the interstate AND so I can rotate them (and have a spare too). I happen to like the look of the OEM 9 spoke Alloys, so I'm quite happy to keep that look. When the 175/55R15's wear out, I 'may' go with 195/50R15's, but it will be pushing the limits of the rim width.
Thanks again 'members' and the one 'non-member' for your feedback!
