Default NEW TIRES OPINION!!

I just had some Kelley Navigator Golds put on my car... they're 70,000 mile tires. I'm just curious as to the opinions you guys might have if anyone has them or something close to them. The ride is a ton better compared to the no namers that used to be on my car from when I bought it! I'll get pics of them bc I don't know if it'* my imagination but they look more round than my other ones did... like the walls of them come out like a doughnut (not the fix a flat tire... like the food)! The tread is great though! Hopefully my camera can get a good close picof tread too! Be back with them as soon as I can this week!

Different PSI ratings you think? I assume they are the same size and what not

I dunno... I just need to take pics so you guys can tell me what you think of them. I just need to hear that they look ok... but don't lie! I need to wash my car again and make them shine b4 any pics. Hopefully I can get to it tomorrow or Thursday. Most likely Thursday tho, so Chad can clean his hoopdie if he wants to inside the limo shop!

The more sidewalls a tire has the higher psi it will require. Our work truck has 8 sidwalls and requires 85psi.

Not entirely true. The more weight the tire is designed for the thicker the sidewall. As well as a million other factors....
