My good buddy went to visit is home town the other day and returned to Kansas City with a set of four tires that fit our SUV perfectly. Apparently, in his hometown they grow like fruit on the trees and you just pick'm off. Well, not quite. Nevertheless, it was a very timely gift.
I realized Sunday just how bad our current tires were. It was raining lightly as I pulled out into traffic. As I stepped on the gas, the rear tires of our truck spun like they were on ice. Granted, the road was slick, but a vehicle weighting 4,000lbs, just shy of 152,000 and motivated by only six cylinders should generally not enable you to do Don Garlits imitations.
This morning, I'll drop the truck off to get the tires swapped out. Might take the old ones and make landescaping out of them...just a little something to boost property values.
