It doesn't look all that bad in person, and given that its only a winter setup, I'm happy with it.



Have you had any rubbing issues with the 225/55/17's? I just came across a set for cheap.

How well did your the ball seat washer adaptor fit? I bought some new lug nuts but the washers did not seem to fit perfectly. When you tested them on the lug did was there any play between them? or were they solid like they were one piece? Do you have a contact/website for the hobby shop where you bought them for 0.50 cents apiece?

I didn't. I took the careful-torquing, loosening, and re-torquing approach with the ball-seat adapters.

What's the careful/proper way of torquing the lug nuts?

Thanks!
