    Rear hub is a nightmare. I had a company use a press on them. He bent one of them. I bought my tires from Walmart. 185s. A few brands to choose from. Good price and they mounted them.

    Re: Pale Primrose

    This color like a tangerine car I painted has a hue of lime green in the paint. If you put on at least two coats the green goes away. (at least it did on my car).
