    Cool Got some wheels and tires for Red Five...

    Found an amazing deal at Facebook Marketplace: a set of older MB 14"x 6" 5-spoke wheels with basically new 185/60-14 tires for $125! So I got them and installed yesterday. They feel and handle so much better than the 4.5 steelies with the Enasaves... I just have a slight vibration beyond 65mph, nothing that a good balance job can't take care of. I'm happy!

    Just got another one... I was already a bit late for work. I really like how they fill the wheelwells and are almost flush with the fenders.

    Looks nice. You need hub rings to make the vibration go away.
