Stainless steel pan scrubber stuffed in one of each pair?

I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice

You know, there aren't very many options, at least not in 15 inch.
I was looking into that, since I will need new tires anyway soon. The problem is that the sidewall for 185/65-15 is already fairly high and there are just no 70 or 75 available.
I looked at 175 and found nothing, there is one Kumho tire in 165/80-15 for $40, but it's on back order and the maximum tire pressure is only 35 psi.

Are you serious? I have been trying to convince myself that something like that would not disintegrate rather quickly. It would all depend on how tightly it jammed in the port. You may know I have taken chances like this with my car; but not with my wife's. FOB damage can get serious pretty quickly.
