I wish they would go back to the RE30s on the car. Looked much better than the Advans.

Agreed. I hate any wheel with a polished lip though. Like full on uncontrollable rage sort of hatred.

^ unfortunately the tire maker is ADVAN/Yokohama, why would they promote any other wheels than their own? Those Advan RZ looks pretty to me...but overall cool vid. I've always wonder how accurate these tests are, sorta like the last vid when they tested the AD07 vs AD08 with the Evo X they always come up with a 1-2 sec faster lap time. LOL

I love the RZ just hate polished lips.

Yeah it is a full on marketing video but good either way. Hey as long as they drop the price down to more reasonable levels like Bridgestone even if the AD08R compound is the same I would be happy.

^I agree too. I've always liked the RZ it just looks funny with a polished lip. And it's just that particular wheel I don't like with a polished lip. Certain wheels look OK.

I still think the RE30 looks much better and honestly I think the car as a whole would look better on 17s.

Love that Legalo face!

Interesting how close the s2000 got to the 86's time considering the difference in power/modifications to the cars.

The front fenders.

Anyone that is an Amuse distributor should be able to order them.
