    Weird, I've never known people to up and unbuckle with the car in motion.

    Did you get a picture of this stock mounting boss you speak of?

    Like we said, anything pre-'03 will be fine. Probably check the stock '01 Sport tire size as a starting point, 225/55/17. Might also consider 235/55/17 and 215/60/17. When I used to shop for...
