Watch when you buy pug wheels! I got some pug wheels with real nice michalin tires, BUT didnt do enough research so i got 190/65/390 wich they no longer make. Good thing i only paid 100$ for all 4 wheels and tires because when the tires go bad the wheels r junk because im not going to pay 285$ a tire!!! so becareful there.

Last year I emailed a guy selling a set on Ebay. He wouldn't tell me what size they were. It was pretty obvious he was trying to get rid of some metrics. What a turd.

I was talking about some pugs, not tires. Sorry. The set listed in the marketplace look to have a nice set of tires on 'em.

I guess i will just run them untill they die. For 100$ i really didnt loose because they should last a year or so.Needed new 13s and they where 250$ for all 4. so now will look for 14 or 15 pugs untill these ware. Posted Image

you should be able to get longer lugs or a source for them at a local tire shop. good idea to do that, too. I'm not happy with how little sticks through on my wagon's 15"s.
I've always checked my lugs and had the bad ones replaced at the machine shop when I get my rotors turned.

I've changed the studs in all the cars I put Pugs on. Just gives me a bit of peace of mind. I use "Doorman"(sp?) studs that are about 1/4 inch longer and .03 inches thicker. You will definately need to have them pressed in. Check at you local parts house, a good one will have all sorts of crazy nuts/bolts. Tim
