Yeah the 205-40-17 is an oddball tire size. I cant think of any other car other than the SRT4 and the GT Cruiser that uses it.

And yes get them balanced. I also wouldn't be surprised if you found a bent wheel. You and I both know how great Michigan roads are.

Thats very cool. I was thinking of making the crank into a table lamp. But I dont need one so I threw it out.

Theres an old jag at my local junk yard. Id love to take the v12 and make a huge table for my living room.

Well we got the 2.4 in this weekend. We traded the 3.55 for a 3.94 trans and snagged a maddog STS. The install actually didnt take long. We had it bolted up within 10min.

Load carrying capacity also plays a factor in tire pressure. Why would you guys put 40PSI in the tires? Putting to much air in the tires increases hydroplaning, provided odd handling characteristics, and results in decreased life. Not to mention intense heat build up with little to no room for the t...
