I will keep that in mind, Thanks. The tire however they wanted $85 shipping included, which they said was their cost. Same tire from MS is $73, shipping included.
I will try the price matching in the future.

Bless me guys I have done nothing! It had been 2 months and 7 days since my last posting/wrenching.....

Well, it has been a while. Started working on it again as it was too hot to work out in the sun on the car! The wife took that as me losing interest and promptly has some remodel ambitions, so that happened. I do however have an update on the tires. I had the tire shop remove the tire that had a bulge. When I got home, I noticed the bead had a separation tear in it, right were the bulge is. Took some pics and but the time I got around to email the HQ, another tire was flat. Emailed them and send some pics. And today I can report, that they are installing two new tires, at a different location, by hand. They did how ever screw up and ordered the wrong tires. Instead of Falken FK07e, they got the Yokohamas A008. I guess for pushing the car around the drive way, that will do. Will keep the same tires on the same axle, but will probably order 2  A008 when I start driving it, someday

Glad to see you back to work!

A008's are a great tire for a Mini, you will like them!

Love the JPS style Valve cover! Growing up in Belgium in the 70ís, everything cool was John Player Special black and gold! Awesome!!! And a black mini, my favorite!

Tore down the front drive axle and suspension components yesterday and will tackle the rear today. I am making a list of thing to order. If anyone in the Tucson, AZ area needs anything from minispares and want to split some shipping cost, let me know. Will order later tonight.
