New rims and tires for the Lotus

I decided to keep the winter tires on the OEM rims and buy new rims and tires for the summer. After reading a lot on lotustalk.com I went for the Team Dynamics Pro 1.2 rims and A048 tires from Yokohama. My first experience is that there is a lot of grip and the steering is somewhat heavier. Also noticeable is the rolling resistance which is higher and resulting in a 5% less range.
