Default Mint “GS” wheels and new tires for the sedan!

Makes for a happy ride after changing from original 15” wheels and old tires after 4 1/2 years!

Tires are Continental Extreme DWS 06, 225/50 R16

Those look so good Eric! So minty! Did you have them refinished, or did you buy them already like that?

Thanks!
One wheel was bought several (5+?) years ago from an eBay seller as refinished (and never taken out of the box) when I thought I had a wheel that wasn’t holding air (turned out to be bad bead on a new tire, Cooper, which I eventually dumped the whole set), another wheel (bought “new” refinished from an eBay seller) was used in a 5 tire rotation and was hardly used sitting in the trunk (I’ll never do a 5 tire rotation again, a waste), and 2 wheels were refinished in 2019 when I went in with another forum member to refinish a full set of wheels he had sitting around.

By the way, the tires are 225/50 R16, Continental Extreme DWS 06

Nice! The DWS is a pretty sporty tire. How does it feel on a softly sprung legend?

Hi Ken - new tires with the 16” wheels making a big difference in ride quality, feels like a luxury car ride after those 15” wheels and old tires! Felt great riding around town local and highway, noticed it right away,
