The Acclaim was in dire need of tires again, so I got a call from my Dad about some tires in my size at a local garage sale. We headed over to check them out.

Sadly only a pair were good, but the 15" Neon wheels sitting next to them had almost brand new tires on them, only 2 years old. I ask about them, the lady tells me $50 takes them, so in the back of the van they go.

The wheels are in decent shape, the tires are excellent.
