If I keep them, the rear tires will need to shrink from 55 to 45 series. Now that I don't drive it to work every day, it's not such a big deal revving higher.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

I like the look a lot better now with a smaller rear tire.
