I'm running A048's now, ADO7's were good but after driving an Exige with AO48's decided worth a try. Looking forward to warm weather to really work'em hard. Rears go quick though, @17K used 2 RR sets of 07's, don't expect 48's to last but who cares its all about having fun and scaring passengers.........

For those of you using the Goodyear tires in the rear do they make the same in 16"s for the fronts?
