New Tires Put On For My 01 Mustang

Yesterday I finally got new tires put on the stang. All the original tires that came with car dry rotted and keep going flat... So I bit the bullet and went to Firestone and purchased new tires. The tires I have now are smaller then the originals. Wasn't really happy but I needed new tires ASAP. So now I have a big wheel gap and now it looks so ugly lol. Just telling the ME world. Haha

Thats the stock size for them...a 245/40/16 can fit them but you're fine with those. Just save for the next round

Damn! Should have known. If I choose meatier tires price would have been higher. But like you said, I'm saving for the next round

yeah . buy two cans of plasti dip, aim at the rims, and spray lol. thats basically all u need to do man. just make sure u clean ur rims before u spray. and spay it in coats so u wont have any runs. dont worry bout getting plasti dip on ur tires, cuz u just peel it off so no big deal.
