Are these specs good for my 04 CV Sport also? Just got this car last month and I see the rear tires have the inside edges worn off which means they were rotated to the back. These tires are about 1/2 worn but the inside edges are not too far from cord showing. Will be upgrading the tires to something better than these Generals but want to get the front end tighter and properly aligned first.

The flags are pressed on to the bolt head. If you break the head off the bolt your BFH is too BIG!!!!

Got the flags removed today... Local Ford stealership did it, also did an alignment. Of course they would not do car fixers spec's

Hopefully you got a print out and the adjustment specs the stealership made is close to Carfixer's!

What brand tires? Look kinda close to the Nitto 420 tread pattern....

this is the print out they gave me... its probably no where near close to carfixers specs but it looks better than the initial print out they took when they first started. all except 2 were red.. so i would rather see this green anyday


and the tires im running are Continental Extreme Contact DWS
255/45 fronts and 255/55 rears. They do resemble the 420's thats why i like them. on most tire sites there get the highest ratings for high performance all season tires

when i clean the car I'll take some good pictures just like everyone else does

IIRC a little bit on the costly side for my budget as I was interested in those too but Nittos prevailed.

BTW....I ordered from Discount Tire and the shipping to Hawaii just killed me. It was about $40 a tire.

I just put those Conti's on my '91 Mustang three weeks ago. Thery're a nice tire. Super quiet. Responsive. I find a "softer than I'd like" sidewall; but not a complaint otherwise.
