Wheels and tires

Orginal (spare) and New wheel and tire.

Picked them up yesterday at Discount Tire. Quite a bit of difference between the 600-16 bias ply and the low profile 205/40 Radial tires. They both weigh 40 pounds, so there is no unsprung weight advantage.
Comparison Old/New:
86/73.5 inch circumference.
736/862 revolutions per mile.
2782/3258 engine RPM at 60 MPH in 4th gear SWAG calculation.
4.5/8 inch tread width on the road.
