Default Tires for my steelies

Since this car has cost me so much to continually repair , I rewarded it with new tires. Hope it appreciates it. I'm 46 and still like tall sidewalls and white letters so I bought 215/70/R15 Cooper Cobra GT'*. It gives the circumference of a 225/60/R16, just a tad bigger than the stock 215/65/R15. They look good. I had wanted Dayton Daytona SR'* like my Regal but they are discontinued.

My camera died last winter from below 0 weather so no pics. Well, it isn't dead but the resulting photos are....different

The current car problem is a thouroughly rotted out rear wheelwell. Patched it up last summer but it is gonna need a liner bigtime. I have access to lots of sheetmetal but if it ever came loose, bye bye tire.

At least the motor and tranny have stayed happy.
