I finally got some new tires. The old ones (P255/50R16'*) are now gone. I figured since the tread was now perfectly smooth (not jokeing) I needed to replace them. I picked up a set of Aquasteel'* for $75 a piece. That are P225/60R16'*. So far they are all right. They grip really good but don't corner as well as the old fatties I had. They also have a little stiffer ride since they have the steel belted sidewalls (they are runflats too). Just needed a decent winter tire for here in MN. Next spring I am hopeing for a set of 18'* so I didn't want to go to expensive on this set. But they work.
I also got my doughnut fixed. For those of you who are saying ????, it'* the gasket between the exhaust manifold and the down pipe at the back of the engine. Mine was completely gone. Once I got it fixed it really smoothed out the sound of the car and did quite it a little. Alot smoother reving sound now as I go thru the gears with less sputtering and odd noises from it. I think the freaks that but my new exhaust on a year ago might have overlooked that part.
