Jerry - the wheels look fantastic. Nice job.



Clarification: are the tires new too? What did you go with?

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...

Below is the size stamp on the tires.
Here's the Douglas brand:

And here's the Cooper brand:

Here is each tire side-by-side (Douglas left side / Cooper right side):

And here's a rear shot comparison (Douglas left side / Cooper right side):

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