The one I test drove had DUNLOP SP9000's on them. Those are great summer tires. Is that stock or is that special order?

Thanks...

did you guys with the 02 model get yours with 18" rims? I'd like to see a side by side comparison (other than tirerack) if any of you having pics you're willing to post.

Aren't the manual tranny IS's supposed to come standard with the 18's? I thought they were. I haven't seen any at the dealer with 18" rims.

For the Canadians out there:
Test drove a 5-speed in Absolutely Red last night at Erin Park Lexus. (They had also taken delivery of a Sportcross in GGP the day before but it wasn't yet ready for testing out.) Anyhow, the 5sp also had the Dunlop SP9000's on them. Sweet ride, but I was surprised when I managed to squeal them when I threw it (not really that hard either IMO) into a corner. I've run old Conti Sport Contacts and Pirelli P700Z's in my 8 yr. old Civic and have rarely gotten them to squeal so not really sure what happened. (BTW, TRAC was on).
Planning on 2002 5sp. in MSM in mid-October if all goes well.

There are two Red '02's w/ manual trans. at Lexus of Dayton (OH), both had Dunlop SP9000s. BTW, they also had 17" rims.
