Default Extra picts

I added a few more pictures to show the new setup. Outer wheel/tire is a 205/55 r 16. Inner one is 215 /60 (16). --> 5 or 6cm taller.
And some time travel: a Firestone spare tire from looong time ago. Never used, still on original rim, stickered by Volvo. Bad news that Hydra wheel does not fit into trunk compartment of the wagon, they are too wide and too tall. Neither with 195-s on them which I had long ago.

I personally like the height of 195/65R15s on a 7 series, but you can buy digital adapters to make the speed read correctly with any tire size. Look at the Dakota Digital SGI-5.

Yes Sir, That`s a Catch-22 situation.

Oh, nice,I read the discription. I`d say `The less electric the better` but that unit is some serious business when you need it.
I`d rather spend time on finally wiring my roofrack fog leds...gosh

Feels great burning just a few sick swelling eyeballs (daily), after shift-back smoking stupid tailgaters off. Combining the two with a visible 2x3 tow-hitch & a follow-up semi truck horn is best. As mean as it sounds but hey, it`s NYC. It must work. :-) (funny,disadvantages: A,must not be doing it w a cold motor; B,doesnt smoke much at op temp)

I use the Volvo mostly for longer trips where a windshield mounted TomTom does the trick (displays my real-time speed).
Wrangler buddy on hUgE ballOOns will love the Dakota gear!

Thank you TurboBricks for sharing this cool shot. You touched the `smoke-screw` again. STAY in the left lane! BRICKS ONLY.
