2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test


2013 Scion FR-S: Aftermarket Wheel Opinion

November 08, 2012

 fr_s_wheel2.JPG About a month ago James wrote a BRZ post noting how he'd keep the stock wheels (and probably tires). I respect that viewpoint, as there is definitely something to be said to keeping that balance of performance and comfort. But having spent considerable time in both our stock BRZ and upgraded FR-S, I prefer the FR-S' wheels and tires.

First of all, I just love the look of the Volk wheels on our car -- especially their extra width. It brings some extra aggressiveness to the car that I enjoy. Secondly, I've gotten used to the extra grip. The way our FR-S handles seems pretty natural to me now.

Having driven the upgraded setup, I don't think I'd want to go back to stock.
