Re: Maximum tire size on 19 A rims / risks?

I just purchased 550R19 Excelsior Stahl's with tubes. After the powder coating, I guess I'll find out. I don't expect any negative effects.

Re: Ford authorized sale of "imperfect" model a engines.

I'm not sure what that means. Does it mean that the Secretary of State in a particular state (or Federal) came up with a replacement engine number series?

I would like to know more about it for my...
