i'm also running 8x17 ifg on 235 40 17 a032r, and
these are great for the street. they stick great in
the dry and WET. it's been raining in chicago lately
and i can run faster on these than my old pilot sport.
the only negative is the howl between 35-50 mph. its
mostly quiet out of those ranges. and the engine loves
the lighter weight and smaller tire diameter.

i've had a chance to weigh the IFG before i had the
tires mounted and they came in at 18,5 lbs for 17x8???
this surprised me since every web site i've visisted
and magazines mentioned the 17x9 weighing in at 17.5
lbs. how can the 8s be more than the 9s. the only
place else i saw them weigh in at 18.6 lbs was at
suzy's gallery from jim powell...can i now consider
hardware specs in ths ame category as "claimed" hp
gain... anyone has actual weights for these.
i know the a032r comes in at 23 1/4 lbs...
