I am considering ordering some Kumho185/80/13's for the 10 hour freeway cruise to the West Coast Nationals. I figure they are about 7% larger in the diameter than the 205/60's that I run now. That reduces my 70 mph cruising rpm from 4000 to about 3720. I have six extra wheels so converting back for better handling is not a problem. At $155 plus mounting it's the cheapest way to get overdrive!

The 60 series tires leave a huge gap between the tire and the wing and look wrong on the car if you ask me. When I win the lotto some large wheels and suitable tires would be nice.

See you on the road,
