I've got a set of Impala wheels with center caps and good meaty (almost brand new I'd say) tires. They are pretty near mint! No curb rash at all. Minimal pitting. I'd say you couldn't see anything if they were on a car unless you bent over to look. Bought them for a Roadmaster and never ended up using them. Anyways I bought them for 900 delivered. I'd like to get that back out of it. I thought it was a decent deal at the time but I never deal with impala stuff so you guys tell me. Feel free to make an offer and I can deliver them within reason. Anywho if anyone wants to have a look my shop is located in Boxborough MA.

Also on a side note. I would trade for 4 absolutley perfect factory chrome fleetwood wheels with or without tires.

But they have to be perfect! And they have to be chrome.

Goodyear 235 55's....

Pretty sure they are supposed to be 255's but I don't really know impalas. They look good and fat though.... I never thought they were the wrong size looking at them.

Can anyone confirm or deny the correct tire size?

Nope. Not Impala. Stock Impala tire size is 255/50-17.

The 235/55-17's are a Cadillac Deville (2000 - 2005 or so) size.

There is much more selection of brands available in that profile, and they are about the same height as the 255/50, so they are a popular alternative to the getting-harder-to-find 255/50's.

OK, Goodyear whats's?
Although theyre much smaller then the stock wagon wheel/tire combo, I was going to ditch those anyway.

I really don't have a use for them so sure haha. I think I'd really want the 900 at this point..... The tires are so meaty it's like getting the rims for free haha

RS-A's have to be the worst tire i've ever run. They barely lasted 50k before 3 out of the 4 dry rotted.

Because its sold as a performance tire. They're garbage. Tread life was laughable, hydroplaned in park. Junk, junk junk. I seem to recall paying about $170 each for mine too.

Idk they seem nice to me and they have pretty good reviews. Unlucky maybe? 

I've always found tire rack to have to best prices also. Where are you buying your tires so much cheaper?

Don't want to derail this man's for sale thread but the RSA's were on my 9C1 and they were AWFUL. I think the hydroplanning in park was the best metaphor to describe how bad they were.

You guys sure are doing a good job of it haha


It's not a big deal though. If Steve or anyone else wants them great. If not I will use them at some point. Any car Id put these wheels on wouldn't ever see rain anyhow. So either my burgundy roady or the triple black fleetwood haha. They are just to nice.

I never had a problem with 15" RS-A. I must have driven over 100K miles with them on multiple sets. The NH and MA state police used them.

235/55's are real close to the same height as a 255/50, just a little skinnier. Ran em on my boxy Fleetwood on SS wheels (cuz they were cheap  cheers )
