    nah, sport with flipper shifter auto.... Maxing out the boost tables gives another 90 ft/lbs of torque from about 1650 rpm up until they start to run out of turbo at 4500ish. It made the car a real hoot to drive although nothing like instant Tesla torque.

    On the rim diameter choice side of things, I think rim quality, weight and tire choice would mean a lot more to me than simply the size of the rim. It would take a bit of research to come up with the best choice but then my criteria would be different than yours most likely. For instance, I really do not have an opinion on size of sidewall. Overall package looks on the car would be more imporant to me.

    Also, in Florida we do not have a big problem with pot holes damaging rims. This seems to be an issue in other parts of the country.
