    I think the originals were equivalent to 195/75r14. Found a set of those locally this morning. Getting installed now.

    I'll eventually go with something else on Ansen Sprint style aluminum slot mags, if I can ever find a set that fits.

    Just need to be road worthy right now. It's sat in my garage and barn long enough.

    Never heard of Milestar but they'll probably have a lesser chance of a blowout than what I had on there.

    They're a very good tire, that's what I put on my daughter's car a few years back. Very pleased with the tire.

    Took a chance on a road trip. Made it 34 miles round trip to the closest Walmart to get softener salt and back. Found out the Ranchero attracts a lot of attention, especially the wrong kind. I took mostly county roads to get there a county cops met me along the way. He turned around and followed me for maybe 3 or 4 miles, mostly keeping his distance. He closed the distance in the last mile or so getting close enough I suppose to read my license plate and see if I was wearing a seat belt. Finally got satisfied I guess about a quarter mile from my destination and turned off.

    Lots of waves and short conversation in the Wally's parking lot with an admirer too.

    Glad to see it out & about. But you know, adding a hood scoop probably won't help with the cop thing...
