...kinda over did it...wife use complain how hard the car was to turn 
the wheels from a standstill....

finally got rid of the old Michelins and put on nice alloys and new 
rubber...realized the tires were nearly 20.5 years old!

The guy changing the tires laughed his butt off. Took a drill and 
drilled int othe rubber tread...rubber came out as easy as wood chips 
and nearly as hard.
