PING... ping PING ping Laurie S

Laurie. You said you had a balloon spare in Trouble? If so, what size?
I'm trying to find a compact spare to fit my 16x8s so I'll have room
in the trunk for more than my wallet and a pack of cards... : 0 )
Advice appreciated... Thanks.... Spike

Re: PING... ping PING ping Laurie S

I got it from a 1978 or so full-size Ford or Lincoln that was in a junkyard.
We knew which rim to test it on in the junkyard and did so. The tire
actually came out of the back of a Ranchero at the yard where someone had
tossed it. We checked a lot of tires that day. LOL

A lot of them look the right size, but don't fit the lugs. I think the
diameter of the tire is about 25 inches and the thickness is less than 6
inches. I made a fancy tire cover for it, which is I why remember the
measurements.
