The non-GT 4-cyl transaxle has the tallest final drive. It's what I put in my 3-cyl car.

light alloy wheels and high pressure LRR tires, although it is hard to find wheels and tires that are skinny enough!
I think most people who know about LRR would instinctively suggest the Bridgestone P165/65R14 RE92’s that were used on the Insight as a great LRR tire.
