Talking '01 Vert with 9-5 10 spoke Wheels and 205/55/16 Tires

Last summer I was looking thru Craigslist and came across 10 spoke 9-5 wheels in WVa. for $100. We went for a ride ( you know any excuse for a ride ), and picked up the wheels. By the way, 4 wheels without tires will fit in the back of a 'vert. Fast forward to last week. I called the wheel guy and had him straighten them, and then went and had some 205/55/16 Sumic tires put on. Before anyone blast me, I know that the speedo will be off but only 2mph at 60mph. These are not the most expensive tires on the market, but I have them on my '88 vert in the same size and they are quiet and ride very well. A lot of the road noise is gone. Also noticed the the rear tires that where taken off are wore on the inside. Is this normal ?
This being "spring", I also had my 1 year old battery checked and found out that it was bad. I had unhooked the old on-star thinking of that being what drew down the battery. When the guy hooked up tester, is showed a drew somewhere. I suggested a wire touching metal somewhere. Has anyone had this happen in their 9-3?

Looking forward to [email protected]

9-3 'vert wheel/tire pics

As I know that a post without pics is useless, so here....I like the way just 1 size up seems to fill up wheel well better.
