Porsche Crest So it was you that stole my tires!

Dave,

Please, please, please don't put those tires on those Rivieras I saw you driving away on. Find/borrow/steal some Porsche wheels that would accomodate the right tire width/size (IMHO at least a 195/60/15.) Though if I remember correctly, the Kumho rep said that their nicer tires (the Ecsta MX, V700 and Victoracers) start at 205/50/15 and I'm 99.99% sure that the vast majority of Rivieras will not support that size with stock fenders (though I have heard one or 2 people say that they fit).

BTW, once you get the tires, come on down to the stadium and let's help you break them in!

I have 205/50VR15's on there right now Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 they fit fine and don't rub at all. But if you buy the Riveras with the VW backspacing on them they will only accomadate 165 width tires. P.S. and by the way by the next time I get new tires I hope to have a SC front end with crome Fuchs.
