68 z/28 wheel - spare (never out of trunk)
« on: March 09, 2022, 01:35:57 AM »
I planned to post a picture here but the image I took is too large. Thought it would be nice to post from a low mileage car, for reference.  The wheel is super pretty as is the tire.
Any hosting sites suggested? Been out of the car picture posting thing since the days of photobucket taking all my pictures for ransom.
Or I could text to someone until I figure out a good picture site.

I now see an earlier thread on using the 'paint' app to resize pictures.

Have you ever tried Light Image Resizer ? i used the free trial download for years, and finally bought the latest license to use permanently. It's effortless to send the pics from my iPhone (which usually formats the pic too large for CRG rules) to my laptop, resize the pics, and pop them online after saving to my Pictures file for future use. You can use the LIR to save the pic in any format and upsize/downsize you need, easy even for an old geezer like myself. I never trusted Photobucket, for the aforementioned reasons. Glad I didn't -

Thanks for posting for me Darrell.  I did try to resize pictures on my iphone from settings, and it will only let me take the huge size.  I will check out these other recommendations and load those on my phone.

I may be slow most of the time, but I am not seeing any weights on my wheel?????  They shipped unbalanced? I also wonder what the blue chalk line is on the tire down the middle, checking for roundness?

thanks!

Bob, any chance you can post, or send to Darrell, a close up shot of the tire manufacturer's data stamp?  From your pictures, I believe it's on the back side of the tire, below the "Speed" of "Speedway"  Probably a string of numbers and letters in that narrow, oblong, raised area.  Thanks
