New shoes yesterday

I made it 15 months getting some mileage out of the original RFTs on 17" 292s. Now I made the jump to Michelin Super Sports on 19" BBS.
I knew RFTs were heavy but I didn't expect the 17" OE setup to be 20lbs heavier overall than the new 19" package. About 6lbs per front lighter and over 4lbs per rear. Happy!

I had no idea how loud the RFTs were and how poor the car handled. I swear that even the bodily lean is reduced when making a residential 90 turn at 10 mph. ON ramps were amazing today! Now if I can just get the TPMS to reset. Living with Inactive alerts on dash. Sighhhhh. But I love the wheel/tire package.

Sorry I've taken so long to reply with some pics, but I was in Vegas since last Friday for my x9th birthday . My girlfriend gave me the Exotic Car racing- Ferrari experience, 5 laps at LVMS. But, Vegas got rained out on Friday so my Saturday class was overbooked with the Friday folk and I had to surrender my 458 Italia for the Lamborghini Gallardo LP 560-4 below.
Excuse the camera phone pics I just took today.

Nice pics!! Funny, I was also in Vegas from 11/4 to 11/6. Stayed at The Palms. Partied at all the clubs at the Palms and Cosmopolitan.

I am particularly interested in your comments going from 292 with RFT to 19s with non-RFTs. I have the 292s now and plan to go for 19s in the future. Nice, nice wheels!
