Frere discusses the tire and rim - page 333-4 in his 6th edition.

The spring rate of a tire is affected by the volume of air in the tire (as well as, I suppose, its construction and of course the air pressure), so the more space available for the air the more you can do with the tire as a spring. "A small increase in ride comfort," Frere says.

Did these come complete with the low pressure warning system? Or can that be moved from rim to rim?

I had no idea no other rim would fit. Alas, I also have no practical use for this new lore.

Early on you were posting a lot of really interesting "stuff" here as you debugged this somewhat neglected, mistreated car. Are you still doing that in a location I am unaware of, or have you just gotten too busy with other things to continue?
Maybe I missed the memo....
With the economy starting to possibly look shaky, I have been focusing my time and effort on fixing various website issues, and streamlining our computer operations at Pelican. Time for fun and games have to take a back seat to the daily tasks of running the business. Plus, the February swap meets / events are coming up, and the projects I have planned for the car require me to take it out of service for a while. I will dig into those projects after Feb 25th, when I can have the car disabled for an extended period of time.

-Wayne

The factory has a bunch in stock (like 20 fronts and 40 rears), but they are $5K each for the rears, and $4K each for the fronts (Porsche list). These were $2K for the pair. Seemed like a better way to go to me...

You were robbed! WOW! I've Air Freighted several thousand pounds of equipment, insured, from Houston to Romania, for about $1.25 per pound. And that included crating.

Did that include duties? $277, if it included duties wouldn't be that bad.
