one of my friends got a ticket to "accelerating too quickly" but he has a v8 camaro. supposedly the cop followed him for a few blocks and he "broke the tires loose" more than once (friend says he didn't). cop blocked him in the parking spot at a mini mart

i had 215/55/16 on my vibe for a lil while but my dealer noticed and threatened to void my warranty so i had to switch back. normally, the vibe's speedometer reads 2mph slow so this will make it read correct/faster (according to gps) but will cause the odometer to read slow.

lighter weight rims will increase acceleration and decrease times. i think i've read here somewhere that the stock rims are 21lbs. if you get rims in the 14-17lb range you would get under 16 second 1/4
