Yup, I too have seen many some of the combos on the chart damage cars and/or tires and it has been suggested to the author of the chart that he simply put an all inclusuve general dsisclaimer in the chart saying something like "Not all the recomendations in this chart have been properly tested to determine if there will be no interference of the tire with the fender under all conditions so please verify this for yourself before driving the car.", but oh no, this would be WAYtoo difficult and he would rather be in blind denial about the FACT that some of these combos have caused damage to some cars and/or tires under some conditions which is an incredibly irresponsible thing to do . . Then on top of his denial, he spews some obviously bogus story saying that there is only one guy in the entire world that has mentioned a problem with some of the suggestions on the chart and that this particular persons factual statements are not factual because this person had beeen banned from 2000 different internet sites is simply laughable and shows just exactly how irresponsible, childish, incompetent and unconcerned the author of this chart really is.
if he actually did take this serioiusly as he laughably claims, he would put a simple disclaimer in there similar to the one i posted which has been suggested several times before . . his continued outright refusal to do so raises some very serious questions, one of them being the possibility of people whose cars and/or tires were damaged using one of the recommendations on the chart, suing him and/or the mustang shops that post this chart on their sites.
Also, if he was genuinely concerned about knowing if someones car was damaged by using omne of the recommebdations in the chart, he would be offeriung to pay for the damage donlt ya think, since its his recommendatioins that caused the damage? . . I'm pretty sure that it will be a very cold day in h_ll before that happens.
Now, what if someones tire got cut from the fender lip causing it to go flat which in turn causes the car to suddenly veer off into oncoming traffic killing evryone involved including a few 8 year old kids . . Is he gonna step up and assume responsibility for that too?
It seems to me by his post that this is simply some childish vendetta to try and make him look good and one person that he seems to have it out for look bad.
. . . . . If you don't want to possibly have your car end up like this...
. . . . . . . . . . . . .
. . . . . . ...or you or possibly your kids etc end up like this...
. . . .
...I simply suggest you PROPERLY check the tire/wheel fitment PRIOR to driving the car . . That doesn't sound like a stupid idea to me.
