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
