    The website above has a calculator that takes into account wheel diameter, width and offset along with tire size and aspect ratio. Going from a 205/45 x 17" tire and a 17"x7" 55mm wheel to a 245/45 x16" tire and a 16"x8" 50mm wheel makes a 1.01 mph different at 60 mph. So no adjustment needed. The website also shows before and after fit over the hub and strut in 2 different colors so you can see the change. It also gives very specific dimensions for any changes. It's a pretty cool website.

    I just picked up the car and Mike's Custom Performance did the tranny lube change, welded on a new muffler hanger bracket and installed 2 new urethane isolators for free. That was to pay me back for having lost my hotel money at Sebring when I didn't run because they screwed up my battery hold down. I thought that was very fair of them and they didn't give me any grief at all.

    The Ford synthetic gear lube has already made a slight difference in how easily the car shifts. I was a bit surprised by that. In the reading I did, it seemed most people realized an improvement over time and not so much right from the start. So if mine gets any better over time I'll call it a $40 well spent!

    It doesn't hurt to do that sooner than later.

    Very True, but my one year old car is not having problems shifting to warrant replacing the transmission fluid before it is due to be changed.
