My baby got a new pair of shoes

Also, a brand new top. My old 205/70R/13s were getting date coded out, still looked good, but Russian Roulette . I decided to go to a larger wheel to get a better tire. I have no problem with you guys that have Rally or after market wheels, they loo fine to me. One the options my car didn't how was the factory 3 prong. I took care of that as soon as I had the time and $$$ available. I didn't want to give that look, so I went to 14" full size Chevy 3 prong. The tires are 225/60R/14. This this a great size tire for me as the REVs per mile or Vairy close to factory specs. I took the GPS for a 20 mile spin today and the speedo was about 1 to 1.5 MPH lower than the GPS at 60 MPH, so that works well. I couldn't decide if I wanted the RWL out or not, went with OUT. I happy with that (my car). A very special thanks to "JUNKMAN", he took the time to mount a set of this size and sent me pics of potential clearance issues. The front are 14/6 with 4"BS, the rears are 14/7 with 4.25BS. I'm still smiling after my test drive.

Thank in advance.

The front is stock, I raised the rear about 1/2" to compensate for week springs.

Vairy sharp indeed! I'm a big fan of raised white letter tires. I hadn't thought about them with spokes, but it comes out lookin' good!

[www.ebay.com]


Summit VIA Ebay, got them when the had the 20% off deal. I would have purchased the tires that way, but no one would give me a straight answer about the DOT date. I went to a small local dealer and he promised less than six months old. They were $140 each out the door, mounting, balancing, stems, taxes. It would have cost this much if I would have purchased them form Ebay then took them somewhere to have them mounted and Balanced. If you have your own mounting stuff then Ebay would be a better deal.
