2008 SC in Root Beer Metallic.

Running Enkei EKM3 wheels, and Goodyear Eagle LS2's. VERY grippy. VERY responsive. I cut almost 8 pounds per rim by using the Enkei's. Translated into quicker steering response and a slightly better ride.

installed 235/70-16 Falken A/T3W 2 days ago, stock 16" wheels. No rubbing that I can find but front caliper decided to seize up so haven't been driving it much until I get time to fix it.

I bought a set of Cooper AT3 4S a week ago or so and compared to the "Good Ride" crap that the car came to me with the difference is pretty astonishing really!

I didn't think the Good Ride were that terrible but alas they seem now to be.

The Cooper are much more quiet which I was afraid would not be the case and overall the ride and handling of the E is better in every way.
We still have had no wet roads here though so I can not talk about that just yet.
Looks are also miles ahead to me!

Highly Endorsed Tire so far!

225/75 - 16 Cooper AT3 4S on 16 x 7 Sparko Terra wheels. Wheels are 18.7 lbs., Tires are 30 lbs., so combo is only slightly heavier that the stock alloys and tires - did a lot or research on weights before buying. No rubbing. It is a 5 speed manual transmission AWD, so the gear ratios are lower than normal Elements. Even with the larger diameter tires, it still accelerates well. Speedometer is about 3.5% off, but I use the GPS for speedometer anyway. Rides great, engine RPM is a couple hundred lower on the highway. Doesn't appear to have changed the MPG.
