    You could do a low speed coastdown comparison if you really want to know which one rolls better. I've done it before. (I'm a nerd.)

    I put Enasaves on the front of my crappy Miata last summer after comparing to the stock tires. Big difference in RR, plus the Enasaves are narrower, which is better for aero. (Yes, I'm going for lowest cruising MPG with the Miata.)
    According to the tire size calculator, it's a 0.9% change in diameter. When I sat in the car, it 'feels' a teeny bit taller. Maybe it's just me thinking too much, haha.

    According to online specs, the tires on the VX wheels are considered LRR. It definitely rolls much better than the snow tires.

    Yeah, if I had 165s on versus 175s, I'm sure the RR would be much better. According to the MPG gauge, I'm getting better mpg's overall. But I'm assuming the overall mileage I get from the tank of gas is higher because the wheels are spinning just slightly faster...?

    This is how your air filter and cabin filter looks after 51,000 miles! Well, the engine air filter probably has round 4x,000 miles on it since I had an aftermarket intake during the summer.

    Also, had to switch out the parking light and front side-marker lights. Because 2 lights decided to die. Replaced all of them. The only downside was that I got these from amazon here. 4 of the 20 I got didn't work. So, it's a bit of a "trial and error" to see which ones work and which ones don't.

    After 63,xxx miles, decided to replace the brakes and rotors. Why? Because I'll be doing a track event soon! Really looking forward to it.

    Looks like you timed it right.

    You'll have to tell us more about this.

    Will do! I'll try to 'vlog' about it and post some pictures of it around the track

    This is the track layout. Some corners could change but I'm really excited to see how it handles!

    That looks like loads of fun. It also looks like this is not your first time around a track (just a guess.)

    What was your top speed?

    The fastest I got up to was maybe around 65 or 67 mph during a straight. I was chatting to a few owners with well-modified cars and they said they got up to 90-105 on a straight. lol.

    This was my first time on this track layout but my 3rd time on this course. It was my first time out this year though! But man, it was a hell of a experience though!
