New Meats!

Well, I actually got them about a week ago, but I finally got some new tires for Heavy. Check 'em out!:







They're Good Year Wrangler Pro Series A/T 265/75R16s replacing Toyo Open Country A/T's the same size. The GY's are definitely sexier & I won't have to worry about plugs anymore(the Toyo's went as follows: RR=Bald LR=2plugs RF=1plug LF=Ok, but starting to wear!). I got steel valve stems too! What do y'all think?

Nothin' wrong with representing the competition! It kinda was a mistake.....$900 set of tires with a measly $40 mail-in rebate.........what a gyp!

Me & white had fun @ the .org FCT, I think we're done wringing each other's necks. I've gotta wait for my wife to go to work before I burn the strings off. I just don't wanna hear her squirt about it!

That's RI rates for you. Do you remember that old 'Yo Mamma' insult: "Yo mamma's so poor, she has to put chicken McNuggets on layaway."? Well, in RI that's actually how you buy chicken McNuggets! The ride's excellent! I thought they'd have a hum to them, but they're actually really quiet. They grip a lot better than the Toyo's, but the Toyo's were hurtin' for certain!

I got 'em for $149 a pop & I got the steel valve stems. The only thing that was free was the alignment.
