Thanks to everyone for their answers to my tire size question. I was 
able to get 4 - 165/80-13 Kumho tires mounted and balanced in time for 
the cruise in last night. Unfortunately for the cruise in it started 
raining as we were getting ready to leave the house last night. Seeing 
as how we're in the middle of a drought here, I really can't complain 
about the rain.

Now back to my project for today -- fixing the hot tub....

Thanks again,
