Hey bro I have a 97 RS 5spd with 215/45/17's and I get upper 20s in mpg. Of course I drive pretty hard lol.

you would eather have to raise the car or put drop spindles on it,the drop spindles would be the way to go

I actually just put on some 225/55/17s for winter. There's no rubbing but I do gotta be careful hitting bumps too hard or it will rub lol

Hay as long as you happy with it,that is all that matters,watch out for them pot holes & speed bumps.

Will a 2001 eclipse motor fit in a1997 eclipse
