    Hi All:

    Ford dealers and their own tire adverts...

    Boy, that wheel is reminiscent of the covered wagon wooden & steel wheels of the old west. Probably rides as hard too. :)

    B-bbb-uuu-ttttt, put a taller tire with a greater aspect ratio on that wheel & it'll be a bump absorbing, pot hole defying, MPG-increasing, & engine & suspension saving traveler. Jawohl !!

    So does the one here. When I needed tires last fall, I went there and asked. Even with their 4-for-the-price-of-3 sale, their prices were far above other places for identical tires.

    But when you do that on a 20" wheel it makes the car so high you need a step ladder to get in. I like your thinking though about it being a gas saving combination. When I drove the '88 Escort it came out with 13" wheels with 165/80/13's mounted on them. I found some 14" wheels and sometimes ran tires as large as 185/75/14's. Made a car that was slow to get moving even slower.

    Helps reduce the rpms. Also, I like slow. I get to see my beautiful Washington state(other states too) longer. Replaced my original 175x70x14 inch tires with 205x65x15 inch & 195x75x14 inch tires. REALLY get to see my state a long long time. :)

    Like I said already, "My 2 inch taller tires on my SMALL CAR, cause me to drop one inch less into my car seat. Its very nice for my bad back.

    Numerous tire companies do that. Four years ago, I wanted Goodyear tires & they had a $140 "good deal" rebate on their Comfortred Assurance tires. Coupled with 3 other "Les Schwab tires, all which were good tires, we blew up our budget at $1000. Tires have gone scary high. That's why I buy used tires now.... some of them being good Goodyear, Michelin, Continental, Hankook, & other name brand tires.

    Hi Litesong:

    Did you miss the Hankook PT 737h deals posted here?

    My wife said, "no more tires!" Sure glad I had those snow tires to put on, tho. Both cars, too.
    P.S. Like I've said before, ALL new OE AND used Hankook tires(low end?) I have had on my cars previously, have not had long life AND have reacted similarly. Seemingly having good tire tread life initially, ALL my Hankook tires have worn terribly in their latter portions, ending in pre-mature & short lives.

    Years ago I took a car in for a free tire rotation where I bought the tires. When they got it on the rack they came to me and told me I needed new tie rod ends. They'd just be checked maybe a week earlier and were fine. I drove the car about another 100K miles and never did replace the tie rod ends on it. They also never sold me another set of tires. If something like that happened to me now I'd ask them to show me. When they couldn't produce a worn part I would tell them I'd just checked them and that I already knew they were fine. I've become more rebellious in my old age and I can't stand anyone to lie to me.
