I will. As soon as I get adequate tires for them and actual spring comes around to the area
For now I'm still running on the winter set.

Tires have arrived. Brand new Yokohamas, A539 175/60R13, made in Japan.

Will need some fender work, rear is scraping a bit on big bumps while the front sits awkward due to the axle being wider.

I like it
Yeah, front fenders definitely need some work.
I bet it performs even better now, more traction and also better grip in curves due to more track width.

I only got around to driving a few miles in the city so I don't have much of an impression to make, however the first thing I noticed is that the weight of the wheels bogs down the car a bit...

Unfortunately most of the extra weight comes from the tire itself and not the widened rim, so there's nothing that I can really do about it except ramp up the boost

The new 175/60 tire is 1.5 kg (3.3 pounds) heavier than the old 155/65...

Hmm, ok, but 1.5 kg isn't too bad. If you can get your hands on a set of matching aluminum wheels you could get that weight back I guess... But not now that you made these nice DIY steel wheels they have to stay on at least a while.

Yeah it's not much but it's not like a have loads of torque to handle it

An increase in tire weight from 4.7 kg to 6.2 kg is a lot for this car, even half a kg is noticeable. I've looked for aluminum rims before, but 'wide' and '13 inch' automatically means competition rims and they cost a small fortune to get them to my country. These will have to do for now

I've driven it a little bit more in the city today to get more feel out of the new setup.

Comfort has increased due to the tire wall being slightly higher than before, braking and cornering feels improved, however I've not pushed out on the throttle because rear is scraping a helluva lot more than I noticed coming home from the tire shop. I will need to fix that asap, luckily I know someone who can handle this problem and it should be done by the end of next week. And since I don't have the time to drive it during monday-friday, that's not an issue.

Also I've noticed that indeed the compound is very silent. I can hear all of the other noises that the car makes in operation but not the road contact.

As for acceleration, I think it was more of a placebo effect what I first noticed. The real shift in focus is that it comes into boost more gradually than before due to the extra weight but then it starts to pull normally.

However when I'm done with the turbo upgrade I'm hoping to increase the torque band a little so that should address the laziness feel on bottom end rpm.

Rear fenders are done, no more scraping!

The size of the tires is actually part of OEM documentation, however they weren't meant to be fitted on rims with this kind of offset
