Spend the money from the 20s and then the tires on a paint job. Your paint has "silver peel" - similar to "orange peel" but much, much worse.

Well it's not that bad, and it's just on the front bumper near the hood latch area...... Not as bad all those rock chips you got though..... And the black should be painted on by or right after Xmas..... for $200 compared to the $800 and $1300 qoute i got from other shops it's worth the wait so the guy can finish painting his 56 chevy and another old car he has restored......

They are great and i have not had any issues at all since i got mine about 8 months ago... quite and smooth... handle great in rain also! I rotate them every oil change front to back b/c they are directional tires....

As long as they are quiet I'll be happy. I need some rnew rubber now that my charger wheels came in and priced at $98 per tire, I cant go wrong.

Hey i think you got the silver cars mixed up...... I just came home and reminded myself to really check that out and It's only two places on the front bumper in of the hood that looks like it's peeling and they are about half the size of a dime....... Get a grip paco lol j/k
