The southwest side is notorious for potholes and dents due to construction and apparently I hit one on my way there and it leaked out as I ate. So I had to 'escape' the neighborhood and ride the flat about a mile over to the old Tiger Stadium and wait for someone to come with the spare. I ditched the tires after that. The 255/35 was much more tread and you dont feel every rut in the road as much either.
Yeah 255/35/20'* are a lot nicer. The rims I had on my Monte were put on by a conversion company, not by me or the previous owner, so they were done right. The funny thing about them though was because a conversion company did it they put a new tire info sticker on the door. They said I should put 51 PSI cold in the tires...wtf? That'* way toooooo much air.
