Not much warmer around here, I bet when you go out after work your truck will fire right up! These trucks take awhile to warm up but they fire right up even unplugged.

Honeslty, I'm more than happy with these Nitto's. Snow, Mud, Sand down in Fla., Ice these tires do it all quite well. There quiet on the road, they roll over most things instead of plowing and bumping like my Toyo's did. I'm getting excellent tread wear and they look really good mounted on my 18's. What else can I say, there awsome tires.

The wheels are New 2012 take offs and the tires were purchased here in town. I like the 18's better because there is a larger variety of tire sizes to choose from. I got such a good deals on my 18" wheels I decided to "Pay it Forward" and sold my 17's to a guy on here for a price he couldn't refuse. They were brand new Ford wheels in mint condition as were my 18's. everyone was happy at the end.

I got the same tires and from Discount Tire Direct they were 1200 and some change shipped to me door. Local shop charged me 125 to mount balance and get rid of old tires. We are at 20 Degrees here in MD this morning and remote start is just soo nice (Oh and seat heaters are wonderful too LOL.) I have not plugged my truck in yet but may start as it is going to be like this all week.

I paid 902.00 otd here in town for my tires. I'm probably a Nitto cust. for life or at least until something better comes out.
