Put my Fuchs back on today

I had some Rota Foxes (225/255 17") on my 930 due to wanting a better tire selection, but I noticed a difference in the handling and responsiveness of the acceleration. Don't get me wrong it was/is fast.

I decided to put the 7/8" Fuchs back on with some RE-11's (225's/245's). I took it out for a spin and immediately I noticed a difference in slow turning, general handling, and responsiveness to throttle input. I may have to keep these on if Bridgestone will continue or some other manufacturer will continue to make a decent tire.

At some point I'm sure I will have to save my pennies and get some Zuff's in 17's but until them I think I will run the 16" fuchs. It really is amazing what less unsprung weight does for a car!

Yes, I took my rocker covers off. Yes, I didn't put my caps back on, and yes, I took the torsion bar covers/access hole covers off. I don't know why, I just liked it like that. Maybe someday I will have a long hood hot rod and put this stuff back on, maybe not.
