I finally did it. After years of poo pawing on what wheels to use and what tires to get, I finally got them put on. The first pic is with the original factory wheels and 205 / 70 / 15" BF Goodrich Tires and the second pic is with the Cougar 7 spoke wheels I refurbished and 225 / 60 / 16" Michelins.

Dang! I did not think it made a lot of difference other than I always wanted those on my car after looking at all kinds of wheels. So thank all of you for the compliments! I do appreciate the support. I went round and round on tires too... Do I get some decent low cost Firestones, Coopers, Goodyear's? After the pricing, it was not hard to decide to spend an extra $30 - $50 a tire to get something that will not be an issue with balance, longevity and even wear. I have a set of Michie's in the Town Car I have had for over 10 years and they still have 40 k left after about 30 k of use.

Thanks again everyone! I think the 16" fill in the fender wells better now. :p

Now to get that POS V6 to run right. The more sensors I replace, the better it runs... LOL
