These wheels and tires match the width/diameter of the original wheels & tires. The "squared" format and shorter sidewall puts more tire tread on the ground, and improves handling. The custom wheels and Pilot Super Sport tires were tested against the stock Merak tires and wheels. The Merak already handles extremely well, and handling was significantly improved with the custom wheels/tires. For the heavier Bora the custom wheels and Pilot Super Sport tires would be expected to result in much more obvious improvements in handling. One picture was taken as the original and custom wheels were being switched, and can compare how the original and custom wheels look on the car. Please call 703-822-1831 if you are interested. A trip to central California from the Washington DC area is scheduled for the later part of June. Meeting for delivery along my travel route is possible.
