Where in AK are you moving to? As for tires, I run studded 285s, but got DAMN lucky - only paid $160 for a set of brand new studded m/t's. I could NOT pass up that deal.
Mind sharing how you got that deal!!!??? Please??

Craigslist add. The guy had them on one winter, on his ford truck, in Girdwood. I had to take the drive down there, not expecting much but could not BELIEVE he only wanted $160 for all 4!! They were practically new and in excellent shape! Won the lotto on that deal! I've had them on all winter and not a single problem!

Couldn't tell you. I have no idea. I honestly prefer running studs in winter because I feel like that way I have two sets of tires lasting longer since they each run half the year.

I guess I should have been more specific. Not "brand new", but damn near it.

Funny. I think I saw Slingshot parked at Alyeska Tuesday last week. I THINK. And does anyone know the "Hawaiian" Tacoma I see from time to time? It's a purrrrrty truck.

Thought so. I always saw your truck driving around on post, and parked over at the 509th HQ.
I'm the guy with the Silver '08 Yota with black wheels, that's always parked by PFAR.

Thanks man. I'm putting a new lift and tires on it once we get back from this deployment so it will sit just a little bit higher.
