For some strange reason or another

I really like the Mazda RX8 wheels with the H&R drop. The Modas look a little bit our of proportion, perhaps running too thin a tire. Which wheel combo was more comfortable, just out of curiosity?

I agree that the mazda wheels looked great, but I think that the moda's have a MUCH sharper look to them. He was on 18's before - now 19's - do you really have to ask which was more comfortable?

really from 18's to 19's there was not much difference in the ride the 18's a little more cushion, but still not bad, and also the pics of the 19's 225/35/19 in front and 235/35/19 in rear, i had 235's all the way around but it rubbed up front, also theres not a bigger tire you can run when your dropped 2inchs+

19x8 all the way around 225/35/19 up front and 235/35/19 in the rear, i know its pointless to have the same wisth than 2 different tires front and rear but i had 235's all the way around and it rubbed, also in those pic's the tire does look small but for whatever reason its bigger in real life, dont know kinda wierd

they are "225/35/19(front), 235/35/19(rear, for the 3rd damn time, also yeah i was kinda if when i wanted the modas b/c they are supposidly easy to bend, but i only drive 15 miles a day and if i go on a trip i have another car i take. i was told by a few owners they had bent these wheels, but they said the holes they hit they would have bent any 19 regardless of who made it.
