    It's noticeable but not too bad... the improvement in looks more than justifies it IMO.

    The sacrifices for bigger tires. Loss of power is one of them. ;)


    It's not significant, but it's certainly noticeable.

    before the bigger tires I could do a burn out down the street on dry pavement. Now If i try to power brake it just sits there and wont spin.
