Darkside with Hidden Hitch

Post  Zym on Sun Jul 19, 2009 12:12 am

Finally got around to mounting up a tire. It's a Kumho Ecstra 195/55 RF 16. Yea, that RF stands for run-flat. Couldn't believe how incredibly stiff those low-profile sidewalls were. I could about stand on top of the tire without wrinkling it - unmounted! However, it went on relatively easy using some spoons and care. No issues seating the beads at all.

I went with the 195 width because I wasn't real sure a 205 would fit with the hidden hitch. So, had to settle for the only profile available in that width.

Have only a few miles on it right now. No handling issues yet other than the low speed cornering - that was expected. Looking forward to putting some miles on it. Hell, I'm looking forward to picking up a nail in the rear just to see how well it rides with no air! Shocked Very Happy
