What's the RGruppe? Is that some kind of high end type of car group?[/QUOTE]

RGruppe is the older 911 car club air-cooled, very nice cars. These are the cars that I always dreamed about being a Porsche owner. Check out their wbsight.

Hey Top:

Check out the Michelin Pilot Sport 2's at Costco. I got a set of 4 installed for under $800 - [and they have $60 off a set of 4 michelins for the next few weeks].

Who stupidly likes PS2's as they were the OEM tires on my car.

Wow - good deal. I paid $375 for one rear tire from Costco. Of course, I have 19"s.

I had the same options las week. I had 17" Conti's when I bought my Boxster last month and I wanted to go 18". I ended up ordering a set of Falken FK452's. Hopefully they show up tomorrow. I let you know how they are.

My baby has been w/o shoes all weekend

Alright guys, here is another question. I'm currently running 16" wheels, I bought a set of 17" 996 10 spoke lightweight wheels. I'll be running 17x7 front & 17x9 rear, now the tire set up is 255/40-17 rear but still confused about the front some say to run 205/50-17 & some say run 225/45-17. My driving style is pretty conservative but can be abit aggresive when I want to. My set up is PSS9's w/ H&R sway-bars front & rear. Please let me know.
Cheers,
Joe

Stock for 17s is 205/50 f and 255/40 r. That is what I currently have on my stock 17s (which are now my winter wheels).

My 18s have a 225/40 profile on the front, but I haven't heard of 225/45 with 17s before, so I default to others for further insight on that tire ratio.
