try butler.

don't even bother. they do not want to be held responsible for installing the "improper" tires for the wheel application

call wright's car care 770 451-6789. they are very close to automod. they'll give anything a try

take care,
nash

Re: ATL: Tire stretching needed (Vr6Jolf)

I had a bunch of places say they wouldn't install my 205's on an 8" wheel. Discount Tires wanted $150 just to try

I tell you..If you're ever in the Marietta area and want it done (and done right), there is a (gulp) Goodyear over hear thats managed by an enthusiast. I went to get mine installed and didnt have the proper valve stems. Turns out my wheels needed some special euro-type stem (long story).
He went and called some people, got the stems and installed everything very well. He still only charged $20 each to mount and balance.
Its Goodyear on the corner of Roswell and East Piedmont. Ask for Jason http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
Also, Gran Tourismo may be a bet. Although they were a little reluctant to do mine, they said they'd try. Kieren is a cool cat over there.

All my projects are on hold 'till my house sells. Until then, you sheep will have to be content with copying what you see in the magazines.

Or we could just be content with your ever present lip and negative attitude. It does wonders for your image and the scene.

I'm not concerned about the local "scene", as I'm not convinced there is one. Not really worried about my "image", either, as there's too many other people trying to take credit for everything I do anyway, and I'm too old to be stressing about the opinions of college-educated boy-b*tches.
"Ever-present" ? Yeah, all day,every day. Whatever. And anybody could pick up a negative attitude reading your posts in the 1.8T forums, also known as the MK4 forum Jr. You'd argue with a f*cking fencepost.
Adam, if you've got such a problem with me, why not take it up with me in person, instead of kvetching about it on here, or hiding behind your laptop at Dynolab?
