I appreciate the fact that you're doing research, I do. The unnecessary dredging up of old threads just clutters things up though. If you have a question that's pertinent, then ask it, but posting something like, "Good Read!" is pretty fucking useless for everyone here.

I'm looking at the Enkei PF01's right now. Cutting 6lbs from the stockers while adding an inch of width for flatter rubber is looking tempting, if only expensive AF.
