    WHat is the difference.  I have not seen the early style up close I guess.

    I can see that.

    Again, I am sure they do grip VERY well.  The overall contact patch size isn't
that much different than a 205/50-15.  BUT, the Feel of the 15" with a similar
type tire will be much better with the shorter sidewall.  When I put my 15's on I
get better feel and balance and more predictable handleing.  MOre "surefooted" as
you would say.  Granted my 15's have better tires but even with good 14" tires
there is a big difference in "Feel". BUt the ride gets harsher too.  Oh well, I'll
take the feel and handling.
    BTW,  what the heck is 4kqtsleipoins mean.  I dont get it ;-)  L8R
