I think uncovered wheels with chrome nut covers gives a nice nostalgic look.

I liked them. They seemed like pretty good quality tires. I ran down the road at 60 - 70 mph with no issues whatsoever. I would buy them again if needed.

Awesome and you certainly deal with some heat down there so if they were gonna pop, that would be the test.

The sidewall max psi was 110 but I only ran 75 in the rears and 85 in the fronts. I hand checked them after a 100 mile highway stretch and they were not "hot" to the touch.
