The Snowball effect of a blown tire.

I got the tires on the car and drove around town and through some back roads. I am pleased with the ride but still have to watch it on starting or I spin the tires, lol.
225 is the widest they wanted to put on the Factory 6" rims.
Will see how they do because I will be driving this one more than most. Might come up to Michigan for the Ford show. I do need the factory lug nuts. Got 10 from one member but they came after I had the wheels on the car. I could use 40 NOS lugs if anyone has them.

lol, I try to stay away from water. It has been in rain once in 27 years. Won't test in snow either. I never looked at the ratings require to be on all tires for traction and wear.

I have 40 of them NOS in Ford boxes and 8 NOS center caps. What about those 2 blue rear interior fold down corners I asked about in 2017 and you never got back to me on???

I have guy that wants the whole car to rebuild since it is the only T-5 Mach 1 so far located.
What else you need?

Well I came close to the right lugs. I scored 40 of the T-bird lug nuts that slightly different on the end sticking out. Will look way better than just lug nuts for sure.
Found on a facebook page.
