thanks Mike!

Just hung up w/ Tire Rack... my bud that sold me the wheels suggested asking them to do the dismount / mount... hadn't occurred to me that they've got that equipment there as they sell wheel/tire packages. Duh? I was thinking of it as strictly a ginormous warehouse (I'm fortunate it's 7mi from my office - convenient, never pay shipping!).

They agreed to do it no charge, and will exchange the Sumi's for Bridgestone RE760s which appear to run nominally wider - $150 out of pocket for the change. Not terrible.

Went with 255/40 & 295/35 this time, with hopes the added width in front and profile in rear will fill some of the fender gap I've got goin on... and appease Ron-nazi-e's bling bling accusations appropriately (PHEW!!!).

Schwing!

ps. Ken, all I've got is Blues Brothers visions runnin thru my head after reading that story! Classic...
