You should've heard him on the phone bitching about the installer. If I weren't a Bonneville lover too, I'd have found it really humorous.

OMG i dont even want to talk about it....

the guy was pissed that i was taking pics....
putting the wheel weights on the inside
the guy had no clue about the wheel locks that were on the car
I had to him that he couldnt jack the car up with the lift (because of my Undebody Kit)...i explained he needed to use the subframe and jacks....he coulndt comprehend that either

Cool, I'm going to need new tires in the next few months. I've been trying to decide between those and another Goodyear tire thats a tad wider. Good to hear they are pretty sticky
