Finally bought 225/60 R15's. Rolling circumfrance is exactly the same as 205/65 15. Initially, they looked a tad to wide for the rims, but now it's kind of growing on me. Will post pictures as soon as the weather improves.
I have this size Continental Extreme Contact, and they are pretty darn fun. Never can spin them on dry pavement, stop on a dime, but seem to roll a little on hard cornering. I was wondering if this is because they do seem a bit bulging and wide on these stock rims. What do you think?
Actually mine feel great. I used to have the air in at 26 front 27 rear just to get any comfort level in (215-65R15). Now with wider tires, and a smaller sidewall, I got them pumped to 32 front 34 rear and it feels super. I think my old tires were trash and I had 30,000 hard miles on it. Once, I get bored of the speed, I will probably take it back to 26F 27R.
Recently my 91 420SEL with 45,000 miles on it starting pegging out or displayed higher than normal oil pressure.
Recently the gage show high and then the yellow caution light came on. Of course pressure drops at idle.
Obviously I need to put a mechanical gage on the engine to check actual...

Over the past couple of weeks I've sunk about 7k into my, up-until-recently derelict 300SD. I've been talking about it for years but it would appear I'm now actually restoring my W126.
I'm aware it's financially stupid and don't expect to ever be able to sell it for anything. I originally...
Well ladies and gentlemen...we have an issue. The notorious ( from what I know ) w126 trunk will not open. I picked the car up about a week ago, did a full detail inside and out and let’s note that the trunk was opened probably 6-7 times while doing so.
I didhookup a battery at...
Hello all, I have never seen oil spewing out of any passenger side vent tube before. I always keep my oil level right on the money. I was tuning a fuel distrubutor with the Air Filter housing off and all of a sudden a gush of oil. I tried to plug quickly, and then shot off engine. I checked...
