the A050 I'm using isn't LTS, I have 15/16 setup. I know someone who is using 205/50R16 up front and has rubbing issue. I believe he only paid around HK$8500 for a set, and he had his shipped from Japan as well :(

there is no A050LTS yet. I'm not a sensitive driver, so can't really tell what the differences are between A048 and A050, but was told that the 050 has stiffer side wall and provide better turn it feel and generate larger slip angle. I had also swapped the 050 out after about 40miles; I kept on scrapping the front lip since the 050 is an inch smaller in diameter (195/50R15 and 225/45R16) when compared to the OEM setup. I'm saving the 050 for trackdays and currently have put on some Z1*.

EDIT: jesus, why is it so expensive to ship from japan? I wanted to buy Bridgestone - Potenza - RE55S tires and shipping is $600!! WTF!!

I don't know how I would get a cheaper shipping cost. Is the RE55s available in Europe?
