MetroMPG has a sharp eye!!
The tires are in fact new, and of a different brand. The Douglas 155/80R 13's seemed to wear out quickly all things considered. So, I decided to go with Cooper Trendsetters P155/80R 13. There is a width difference between these two brands...

The Coopers do not contact the rear skirts under any condition but the Douglas tires did.
