Old tires lasted 5,186 miles. Picked up a set of cheap 205/70/14s. Not ideal but cheap, wider than original and moved from 500 treadwear to 300. Maybe will gain some traction after the new wears off.

After getting them installed I stopped by a friend's house. He excitedly told me he had a set of rallies "I could have" that would look great on the chevelle. After talking me into them he said he'd let them go for $250-300. Now he's talking solid $300. Wheels need to be blasted and painted, and then I'll need tires. They're true date coded corvette rallies (15x8) with trim rings and caps, so it's not too bad of a deal, just wasn't ready for the expense after just dropping coin on tires. No telling when they'll make it on the car, have to get some side jobs going to pay for it all.

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body. But rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, alcohol drink in the other… your body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"
