I have no love for me tires

Indeed I don’t.

But before I go to that, I had just lowered the front of my car, with the help from a little WD-40:

…and the end result:

Balanced height

The adjustments were minimal, but as you can see now that my front and rear height is more balanced.  Some have noticed but the majority did not, being the fact that my Charmant’s front was actually higher than the rear back then, and it looks pretty silly to me, now that I’ve got this issue sorted, I went and did my alignments, and after that’s done, it’s time for some test drives…hehe….

But I’ve shredded both my rear tires in less than 10 minutes, it was a REALLY hot day afterall, and the shredded rubbers got tangled onto my wheel hub as well:
