225/40-18, 245/35-18. Those have sidewall heights of 225*.4 = 90mm, 245*.35 = 86mm. 245/40-18 is too tall, 245*.4 = 98mm, 25.7" diameter vs. 24.7" stock.

Nobody's MAKING you shift at 2000rpm! YOU decide when to upshift.

AGAIN, taller gears does NOT mean "low rpm"! YOU decide when to upshift. Whether you have 3.9 gears or 4.88 gears.

New BRZ makes *peak power* at 7000rpm, redline is up 100 to 7500rpm.

228hp BRZ at ~13 lb/hp should be a few ticks quicker than 181hp Miata at ~14 lb/hp.
