Matter of perspective, I decided to go with the Sm cause I left it was better though you could very easily say that about the E. so close it hardly matters

Theoretically it should be cheaper to make the E's improvements to the SM than the other way around.

Yeah, how much does it cost to make an SM offroad? i.e. new rims and tires?

My advice would be to lace up a 19 or 21" rim to the current front up and leave the rear as there are more than enough tires for that rim
