Anyway enough justification. On to my wheels. I got everything done at Goh Swee Hin in Jalan Dato Keramat btw. Besides giving me a fab deal on the BBS and trade in, I also got alignment done, on wheel balancing and nitrogen gas for free. What more can you ask? The RK is 16" X 7" and has an offset of 42.

And here's a quick pix of the new wheels. Pardon the lousy quality. Was in a rush. I'm using 205-50 16" sizing and each tyre cost me 400 smackers.
Did some driving to Batu Ferringhi. I must say it's like having upgraded stiffer suspension. Compared to the ultra soft Michelin Energy XM-1s, the PP2 has a much stiffer sidewall giving a firmer ride. Still very comfortable though. Turn-in and steering feel is better too. Tyre noise was up but this is expected as I'm putting more rubber on the road and the PP2 is a performance tyre. Don't have any probs listening to my ICE so this is something I can live with. Have Rays Engineering forged aluminium lightweight lugnuts on the way to further lighten things up a bit. The damn stock chromed plated steel lugnuts already have signs of rust since day1 with one lugnut showing signs of the chrome plating coming of. More pixs to follow after I install the new lugnuts. If you're interested unfortunately there's no more BBS RK at this price - RM2.6K. Not sure if Goh Swee Hin is even able to bring in for 16" size. Sorry.
