You won't get flamed from here!  There's no excuse for the ride you get from
50 section tires and the Corvair is no racing machine by a long shot.
There's no reason why it shouldn't have a decent ride, which it'll never
have with wannabe racer wheels and tires.  Of course, there are those who
don't care and are looking for any excuse to spend more money......
