      point, slap a set of 22's on your ride for only 60 bucks a week......3240 a year or enough to buy the set of 22's and some decent tires to boot....

      What used to get me were the people with the Corvette or the Benz or Beamer or whatever truly fast car  (lots of them out there now)  and they flat refuse to buy the proper speed rated tire for the car because they are too expensive....100k  on a car but a couple k for tires that can handle the car....no way Jose.....

      I would usually force them to pony up or go elsewhere as I wasn't about to put an H rated tire on a car that came from the factory with Z rated for speed......I don't enjoy asking for liability lawsuits....

      Also knew of a couple shops that weren't as careful, who did as the customer asked without getting a disclaimer signed that this was against professional advice, then ate the bill when they took their 90mph rated tire to 150 and wondered why it blew out......

        Luckily my old Smart roadster doesn't have a speed problem but my husband's car does, and it's beanie weenie time for a while afterwards. I do know people who rent them. Seems to be a big thing in TX.
