Re: [DML] Re: 245/60 R15 Tires?

Did you notice slower acceleration with the wider tires?  I haven't pulled my headliner down to do any work on it.  I guess to check for the writing, I would have to pull out the headliner and re-glue it, future project.

I have a potentially more serious problem, over the weekend, I adjusted my right side valves and when reassembling the valve cover stripped the threads on one of the long bolts with the spacer for the cable clip.  I found a longer bolt that I was able to shim with two nuts and it took hold and tightened down.  Haven't started up the car yet, but am hoping it will hold and not leak.  I've never replaced threads before especially in an area as sensitive as the engine block!


VIN #5781

            I have about 5,000 miles on that tire size, no issues with rubbing or 

noise. The build date and times are located under the driver and 

pass. door headliner.
