New shoes for the Lakewood thumbs up
Posted by: MrLakewood ()

New Federal SS-595 205/60R13 87H SS 595 tires for the Lakewood today. The factory 13x7's are at the wheel shop getting straightened and trued. Off to powder coat to get a fresh coat of white. Then I will spray them with the House of colors Abalone Flake and Clear to match my wagons roof. I purchased NOS bow tie beauty rims and new chrome lugs as well! I will keep searching for Spider caps...

Maybe someday!

I'm excited that 205/60R13s are once again available. That is a great size for the stock wheels.

Yeah, too bad I can't get 205 70R 13 anymore, which I have on now. Perfect revs per mile for a LM speedo. Great handing compared to other tires over the years.
