tires...too damn big...

ok so my dad insisted i get a set of tires before i did anything to the car because they were running as bald as lowflyn's.

anyway, since i had never tried putting 4 tires in a mustang i didn't realize how crampt it gets quick trying to fit them in.

i tried playing tetris and putting 2 in the trunk but couldnt cram them in cuz i always sucked at tetris. so i ended up putting one in the backseat and 2 in the frontseat and my laptop on top of them.

so now that set me back a good chunk from getting my exhaust and i have to deal with the 'new tire smell' in my car. damn the small trunkspace.

hatchbacks make life so easy.. fold the rear seatbacks down.. I fit 4 tires AND my spare tire (spare tire well was a work in progress, lol) with room to spare, and I could still see out my rear window :cloud:

Er. What sized tires did you get? I've had to put my 275/35/ZR18s two in the trunk, two in the back seat twice and they fit fine.

if you have the mach 460, your trunk space height is almost nil thanks to the amps...
