1) How long have you had it? MG - A few months
2) Have you noticed any slipping of the transmission? MG - The odd time I think so but its a 5 speed so that could be the clutch?
3) Burning more oil from the engine? MG - It doesn't burn any oil
4) Noticeable difference in the breaking system? MG - I never drove it stock so I wouldn't know but the brakes work well compared to the 911 I used to have

so i upgraded my set up From oem 17" 68 style wheels with a slight stagger in the rear tire, to a 18" staggered set up. 9.5 in the front and 10.5 in the rear:woot:..no camber or anything on all fours...i havent had any issues what so ever, took them to get balanced and get the alignment done both the mechanic and the shop who did the alignment had nothing but compliments, just thought id share my experience from upgrading to a wider and larger diameter, the only thing ive noticed is a better stance and better handling all the way around, suspension is a lot more stiff. although yes i know this will take a toll on my stock suspension i decided to live with it and deal with the issues when they come my way.
