Default Sneak Peek . . .

. . . . the old girl's getting new "shoes" for Spring! I took one of my new tires - and - new wheel to the shop today to get it mounted/balanced. The wheels are Rev Classic 107 Rally Wheels (17 x 7 ) - and - the tries are 225/55/17 Diamond Back Redlines! The wheels had almost zero run out - and - the tires balanced perfectly! Should be ready to go in @ 2 weeks!

They will look great. What's not to like about Diamond Back Redlines?

I love the rally wheel in 17" size, classic but modern!
