LSC to GTC style... it begins
#1
Been putting this off for over 3 years, It now begins.

Left side stripped down, only two small rust spots to be fixed and I know of one more on the trunk.. Amazing in PA, but this car never sees winter for the past 18 years and sits in a garage protected from the elements, I'm lucky with only that much rust.

Further study looks like you have the Riken Raptor. A ZR rated tire owned by Michelin.

It seems to be getting harder to find Wide tall (26.6") car tires. I was trying to find something that would fit my Mark VII when I came across this forum. There's a lot of unhappy people. They drive Mercedes so that may say a lot. They seem to have a problem with the tires holding air then having catastrophic tire failure. With the money you are putting into the car thought you should be aware.

I find a lot of good things said about them. So it looks like short sidewalls and heavy cars may be the problem with the Mercedes.

My tires seem to be ok , I know things fail , usually owner neglect is always overlooked , so I take this report with a grain of sand , if there were serious consistent failures , I'm sure that a recall would be issued by the tire manufacturer .

Any one have thoughts on Soda blasting the surface of the car,, I'm told there is a company that is local and they charge $300 to come to your residence and blast the body. I think if thats a good option, i may go that way, and then I can do surface prep and concentrate on the dings and rust spots better since I will have a clean surface.. Thoughts?
