Ordered this from ebay for $13 to lift the leaf and not destroy the pinched sheet metal underneath.:
USA Ship Universal Slotted Frame Rail Floor Jack Pad Auto Lift Rubber Block Disc
Discount Tire sold me a new tire (215/50 R17 95W 40Kmile) and new rim (Nissan factory requirement 5-114.3 bolt pattern on the rim (Atom)) and mounted the tire on the rim for $148.50 + tax $10.33= total $158.83
They offered to mount it on the front of the car to allay my worry about the fit and function of the rim. I decided not to have them mount the rim because their floor jack, IMHO, would probably have bent the pinch rail.
Pinch rail pad is supposed to arrive this Thursday. I will post my success or failure with mounting the tire and the drive ability.
