We posted photos of the blowout at http://livinginbeauty.net/2016/08/06...out-of-destiny

Very nice post thank you, is the same wheel and tires recommended for a 19' and does it fit ?

I suggest you call Vinnie and ask him. He is one of the kindness and generous men you will ever met and he will gladly give you advice, at no charge.

His phone number is : (707) 978-0356

Tell him Jim Beaubeaux suggested you call him. And tell him hi from us!

Happy Trails . . .

:wally:

Peter, have you abandoned the 15" options of the GYE's, Nokians to save on the rim upgrade???

I'm still undecided on the GYE/Nokians and will make my decision in the spring when I upgrade but have landed on the 15" side of the coin.
