What does the tire say is max PSI? I'll admit I've never looked at single door jamb sticker... For street radials if it's 35 or 44, that's what they get. Got plenty of 50K runs out of "40,000-mile tires" to lean on that not being all bad!! :D Drag radials and the like are subject to "tuning"!

Rims look great BTW!!! :mrgreen: ...and yeah, KC has been hotter than sh** this week!! :x Fair warning for July/ August I guess... :roll:

Ha! There's a thought, look at the tire. Haven't done that. I was assuming they would be 32 or 36. I'll do that tonite. Yeah I've never looked at door stickers either, because I've almost always put on different tires.

Thanks! Yeah seems like it's been hot. Maybe all the hot weather will happen early and we'll have a nice fall.

First drive with the new fronts. It was a lot nicer than it was with the mismatched junkyard ones!! It was a hot drive yesterday afternoon, about 94 in stop and go traffic for about an hour or so. Electric fan did fine, never got over 200, but it ran a lot, got me thinking about an engine mounted fan in addition to the electric to help it out. Anybody do this? Good idea, bad idea? Actually I need to look and make sure I have room, I think I do. Just a thought. As long as the electric one does it's job, it'll be fine.

I did finally get the export brace installed!! Seems like it really does stiffen things up some. Also painted the rear wheels black, just to see how it looks. Can't really tell yet, I haven't had it out of the garage to get a good look at it!! Other than that, still thinking on the rear end, spring relocation, Mini tub, full tub and back half, maybe just leave it alone.....

Yeah, it seems like that's the way to go to fit a decent size tire under there.
