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.

I got one from Discount in a 235 for $160... Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels is pretty good. That sucks man, glad you're alright.

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.

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
