I have had these tires in my sights for the longest time, and over the weekend I finally ordered them. 4 225/45-17 BFGoodrich KDW2's. They arived 2 days later, and I got them mounted today. I can already tell a huuuge diferrence. These tires have improved my handling like BSR improved my acceleration...not to mention they look awesome <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"><p><B>before</B><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/7679/img07108rh.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><B>after</B><br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img156.imageshack.us/img156/9725/img07188cp.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>the shop installed these groovy chrome valve stems and caps<br><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/263/img07175qc.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p><A HREF="http://imageshack.us" TARGET="_blank"><IMG SRC="http://img199.imageshack.us/img199/394/img07119ax.jpg" BORDER="0"></A><p>Sorry for somewhat low res pics.

Re: Finally got tires :) (agc525)

wow, looks great! ya, the stock 205/50 pilots are crap, they're too skinny and have no grip, and don't belong on a torquey, turbocharged FWD car. when i upgraded to 225/40-18 wheels and tires from the stock 17's it totally changed the feel of the car. good choice on the tires, awesome tread design.

Those are great tires. I have them on my AE86 for street + track (r-comps on the other wheels) and they are excellent in both wet and dry. I've run them for ~7 track days. <p>Good choice!<br>-Chris
