I had some time from my crazy schedule to snap some pics of the GXP today. BTW, the car is lowered on U.S Tien springs with a few SuperPro and Whiteline goodies and rides on 255/40/19s.

Great Pictures! What is the fender gap front and rear with the Tein S springs? I'm curious how this compares to my Eibach's.

Hey, I bought mediocre Sumitomo HTRZ lll tires, and they are great! They feel solid on turns, and are a lot quieter on the road than 245s. When I bought my GXP, it came with Goodyear RSA 245/40/19s. Those were horrible for straight line traction. So, I bought a set of 245/40/19 Michelin Primacy ZP tires, and I ended up hating those because they were loud and VERY HARD on bumps. So I took those off and let my sister have em and bought these.

I do recommend these. these particular tires feels solid on turns, even with our wheels being 8 inches wide. They are quiet and comfortable.
