Nice look. I like the way the letters lean. Makes it look fast sitting still.

Umm, care to clarify that a bit. 1. You were doing 89mph and because of the taller tires the speedo said 65, or 2. because you got your new tires, you were highly excited and all the blood rushed to your right foot and made it real heavy and you were...on purpose...driving 89 in a 65, hence creating large amounts of RPM, and making the white lettering look like whitewalls?

So then you don't have a problem with your taller tires creating false speed readings, the problem is your judgement, driving 89 in a 65 in the presence of a trooper....correct?

I guess what I'm gettin at is that your taller tires did not cause a 24 mph difference in speedo output.

Oh, sorry about the ticket...playing is expensive.

Holy Cow!! I feel old now! I guess the tone comes from my dad, he was the cop. I did some military time, but I ain't that close to retirement yet, at least another 15 years.

Yeah I used to try that one: "Well officer, my carb was loadin' up and I was just trying to clear it up and..." I guess that excuse still doesn't work ):h .
