Waygun wins new wheels
« on: September 11, 2011, 05:03:32 PM »

Well,Lady luck had been shining on me.
When I returned to my old slave post,Goodyear had a sales spiff on where if I sold an X number of tires,I get a free set.
Did that and won the tires.
Then...I took part in one of our suppliers product trade show and had to stay to the end for the big draw of 3 major prizes.
Well..I WON A SET OF WHEELS!!
Just in the nick of time,too.
The old 2157514 Hankooks that were donated to me by my good buddy Ray started to develope broken belts.
Crap.
Dont really want to drive long distances on the original bias-ply tires,either.
I jammed on the snow tires for a while,but they were getting noisy and wearing on the hot pavement.
I chose 2356016 Goodyear Comfortred Touring and mounted them on 16X8 Fast wheels.
The tires are now 27.1 inches in diameter which is the closest to the factory original diamter of the old bias ply's.
Now my speedo reads bang on,and the engine revs are lower at speed.
 
So..without any further ado..here she is wearing her new shoes..

Quite a difference on how it changes the look of the car..
Here is a shot a year ago when i picked her up--factory 14 inch hubcaps and bias ply tires..

Installed  the new booties on Saturday.

Looks great...and Waygun has never looked better.  Only thing I'd change...and this is a personal taste..would be raised white letters.

I take it you are going through male menopause.
 
In other words, I like them, too!

What a huge difference.  A major improvement there Leaburn. Congratulations! I really like the black wall look with the chrome wheels. I bet people do this...when you drive by.

Well.....
my excitement over the wheels and tires was quickly deflated when I woke up this morning...
to a flat tire.
Dammit!
I picked up a piece of broken beer bottle glas somewhere along the way in the sidewall.
The tire is not  repairable and will have to pay put of pocket for a new tire.
This really sucks since they are only a week old brand new tires.
