yeah but the but the cost benefit ratio would be way less favorable when compared to the aftermarket. especially when you think about the time to install and cost of alignment

it doesnt really change how the car handles but just at what speeds it begins to handle that way. until you reach the levels of grip that put you into unfavorable camber curves but that would change the handling for the worse

But insurance shouldn't rise for older drivers, right?

The cost to insure will probably go up annually if its an accident prone vehicle

Mostly older people will own this at first. Any accidents in the first few years stands a good chance of being reported with an older driver behind the wheel. Younger people will get it secondhand after a few years unless they're from affluent families which won't be the majority.

I can't wait to absolutely shred those useless Prius tires in the rear, and then rotate them front to back, then rip those up, and then buy actual, real car tires.
I am sure they are putting on these LRR tires so they can get the EPA figures up to a solid 30MPG so they can put it in the advertising.
With some nice Yokohama Advan's or Hankook V12's, this car should grip like nobodies business.

Depends. One might still stay stock Autocross class legal while oe doesn't. Time to install? Maybe an hour?
