Truck is down for a bit

Well, truck will be down for a few weeks. I noticed back in May my front driver side tire had a small 1/2" slice in the sidewall. I thought someones jealousy got the best of them and they tried slicing it. Anyways, didn't think anymore about it, it wasn't leaking air. So, I was at a local car show and started looking at the tire again and it grew to 2" so I got worried called my buddy at Big Hog Customs and told him I think my sidewalls are separating. Then noticed the inside of the rear tire was doing the same but worse. So, after sending him picks he had been battling Mickey Thompson all week, and we found out yesterday that Mickey Thompson agreed to replace the tires. With the down time, I sent out my FICM to Innovative and got it "moderate" tuned. Now I just gotta wait on new tires to get here. Here is some pics of the tires:

This is the perfect time to do some burnouts. You know you are getting new ones any way.

Be sure and put the new pair on the same axle if you have a limited slip or locker.

Haha... Thought about it. Knowing my luck, tire would blow out and take a bunch of other crap with it. Looks like I wont be able to get the new tires, untill the weekend of July 16th. Oh well, might drop it off for some traction bars after I get my FICM back.
