Depends how they fit the strut brace I hope they don't just screw it to the strut tops like I've seen so many done before. As for the shit liners they are only a few minutes job each side.

Lol I remember the old (ancient) advert about not mixing radials and crossplys I very much doubt that you will have radials on the new rims.

dont think you need to worry about the tyres being crossply. but you do need to check if they are diectionals and ensure they are running in the right direction. check the side wall for arrows or the word OUTSIDE.
