    It's a car. Drive it. 13's or not. Use the right adapters, tools (LEAD HAMMER-TIME!), check em on the first rest stop and roll em til they fall off (they won't, atleast not without an axle or splndle attached to it!) I've gone ANYWHERE I've 1000+ miles a week in comute (my fleetwood odometer works or I'd never know I drive that far a week lol), Back and forth between cincy, indy, and lexington a few times, any weather. Good idea to have bout 60-75 p.s.i. in a linc on 155/80s though, it'll handle alot better alot effortlessly( no swerving tryna keep it on the road when its windy or over 60 mph.)

    Same here, 1" shimmed in so when its down it barely pokes and when it's up its perfectly straight. Ride around with the front almos tlocked up all of the time. Use tires about as fast as if I didn't have juice. I never 3 wheel or let my tires lower that 50 psi either.

    Cincinnati to Detroit and back. 95 towncar, six batteries. 80-90 whole way on the interstate. It's like 5 hours not sure about mileage. 0 problems.

    Also, the town I live in now has a Cooper Tire factory. The guys I've met that work there say they take their cheapest tire line and test them with double the recommended weight and they don't fail til right at 200mph. Said they have to withstand that test up to 19-something or they consider the batch bad. Thought that was interesting.

    I got about 2 to 4 thousand miles out of my front tires with 1.5 extension. The back tires still look great (full frame wrap, 2pumps, 8batts). I am planning on shimming my a-arms back, but didn't know how much since I do hop a little and my a-arms are not chained.

    Cooper Trendsetters were the shiznit!
    Speaking of tires and the shiznit, I rolled my lady's Caddi from the top of Idaho>Montana>Utah>VEGAS>San Bernadino>Crenshaw Blvd.>then the 101 back up North>Sacramento>Reno>Idaho on a family trip through-out a few weeks on some hankooks. Longest stretch was a 21 hour cruise. Did the same trip multiple times w/ the S-10 on a set of 20" spokes several yrs back. Make sure you lube those adapters and bring 2 hammers, and some pandora, lol.

    Lol, just remembered one of the trips, when I rolled the S-10 on those 20" wires, one of those bitches wasn't lubed enough, loosened just a few treads, then the adapter seized, so every time I stepped on the gas I could hear the adapter teeth grinding off. It was back in 2003ish, which was a year I was not giving a fuck, so I rode that bitch drunk 2 more states till I reached A-1 tire and wheel in Stockton where the china wheel was purchased through mail order, got a new adapter/knock-off, then I had a local fab shop torch that bitch off! Lol.
