well.... where do i go

well i was going to dinner last night with some friends and doin about 65-70 down the highway and all of a sudden BAM!!! no more passenger tire. just up and expladed. what the hell happened? cheap a$$ bull tires. they were still pretty new. well i guess thats what happenes when people that make these things cut corners to save a buck. if i would not have been in the fast lane i would have been in real trouble.




now here is my question.

i just need a couple cheap tires till i get income tax back. what websites do yall use? as long as i have heard of the tire name im open to buy them. 285-75-16. so what do you think

Well I got some old firestone tires that came with powerstrokes back in the 2000. I could prob sell you 2 for like 150 they are pretty decent shape and all. I just would'nt know how to come by shipping them. Tell me what you think. I think they were like
265's.

2000 F-250 216k- smoke much?

i appreciate the offer but i think they would look funny with the 285's in the back. maybe not i mean its not that big of a difference.


is it just my truck or do i have big tires? they dont seem big to me. they are only a hare smaller than the 33's
