i woke up one morning not needing or wanting to buy a car,
4 hours later there was a same color as my '98 Riv in my garage. I looked around and said what the hell did i just do? oh well, needed new winter car and now i got it. 1997 NA Riv (did not want SC for winter) 2 sets wheels and tires, under 100K mi. great maintenance, and a great looking wood trim kit installed. motivated seller! couldnt pass it up. some minor flaws dings burns scratches peeling and bubbling. but this will be the best snow getter ill ever have. some snow tires and i will own that Wisco winter! i actually have a fleet to compete on here and i feel like such a nerd but hey, its only $ and life is short.

have a great day

And how much $$$$.

You have 15" wheels on the Regal, I thought they were 16' from the factory, NO/Yes..????
Is this model tire a winter tire only or are they A/S.?
