time to find tires that will work good with the steel 14" pugs from a '79 504 diesel

Posted Image

the center hole is like the one on the left, with the bolt holes like the ones on the right

I only have 13 of the special nuts
would regular nuts work for the missing 3?

tires... would 185/70-14 winterfire work?

tires mounted, picked them up today, unloaded onto trailer, look at bill, CHARGED FOR "MOUNTING", notice tires are not balanced, take bill back to store, ask why was charged for "MOUNTING", "MOUNTING" is code for "BALANCE", wonder why not balanced, explain that I did NOT see any weights :confused: , go back home and load tires into car again to take them back to be balanced, after balancing they have weights - imagine that :rolleyes: , take tires back and unload on trailer, admire the newly installed weights :) , record DOT code, 2 from Brazil, 2 from OK.

at least it's a friendly small town tire store, worked directly with the "assistant manager"

I kept the one "good" tire I took in, so now I have a spare for the spare

paid CA$H

185-70/14 winterfire 4 * $ 39
"MOUNTING" 4 * 10
valve stems 4 * 2.25
tire disposal 3 * 2.5
sales tax 14.88

total $227.38

pics later once installed

just a teaser

will most likely be installing while doing brake work
