So , I test fitted the RDX 18's. not gonna work. Well, let me rephrase, not gonna work FOR ME. I'm not into that stance shit and these definately poke out.




Too bad, I kinda liked the look.

Yeah, if it gets turned into an STF auto-x car next spring it will get a set of specific wheels and tires for that. likely some RPF1's and some 225/45/17 Star Specs.

Hey-It's a drag to have tires/wheels that are too big. Better to go with something reasonable, as you did.
Dark gray is a favorite color of mine. Very handsome!

Got the new 225/45/17 4X's on the stock 7" wheels last night. What a m'er f'in beyotch. That was a fight.... but well worth it. Why didn'y Kia use good tires on these cars? They would have sold a shit-ton more cars! It's smooth, quiet, poised and drives fantastic. The stock Goodyear RS-A's had ~5-6/32 of tread left, but the instant I started breaking them down the dry rot showed it's ugly head. Cracks were EVERYWHERE.

So, I learned a few things this weekend. A few of us volunteered to run an auto-x for the huge mopar weekend at (formerly known as) IRP. That in itself was worth paying admission for... watching a bunch of 4k+ lb hemi powered cars trying to turn was absolutely hilarious! But I took the Forte out for some fun laps, took about 10 runs or so. I was suprised. I was still running 32psi all around on my new Kumho Ecsta 4X's in a little larger than stock 225/45/17 on the stock 7" wheels.

The car was very nuetral out of the box. It would step the ass out quite easily. It was fairly responsive, had a ton of power down low (which you would expect out of that 2.4L) and the brakes were OK. Not a great feel on the brake pedal, but it still has the stock pads all around.

Raleigh Boreen was out running different things, including Velma's Mini Cooper S convertible. His best run in the mini was a 45.5 on BFG Summer tires in the stock 205/45/17 size. My best run was a 45.2. I was the fastest FWD car out there this weekend.... in a bone stock Kia.

What it really needs is better pads, about 3* of camber up front and some better tire/wheels. Dropping it about 2" wouldn't hurt either.... but man was it a ton of fun. I think this may be a potential contender in STF.

If it had been anyone but Raleigh, I'd agree. That man has been autocrossing longer than I've been alive I think. He's probably forgotten more than I will ever know. He's not just good, he's REAL good. He took a few cars out on Sat and beat every car owner. One had been auto-x'ing his 1971 T/A 340 6-pack since 1976.
