    Looking at tires and considering this route. Was hoping to see it in person first.

    Ah, it was Alan - I knew I had seen someone on one of our trips!

    Any chance we could meet up this weekend, like half way between us or something? I'd like to talk a bit in depth. I'll cover food for your troubles since it's kind of a drive ;) I understand there's some famous root beer place in Issaquah that is supposed to be amazing... the Triple XXX Root Beer Drive In? I don't know how busy it is, just sounded like a good way of making the trip worth it.

    If Benson X has free time, I'll have him carpool with me and we could make it sort of a mini- food meet

    Absolutely. I am free all day Saturday. Are you interested in wheeling on Saturday at all? You could not only look at the 255's, but test them out too! I am open to location, was thinking Liberty would be cool. Posted an invite in the meet thread but it doesn't look like anyone else is on board.

    Well I am kinda down one tire, so I'm strictly on-road for now. Also have a lot on my plate so I can spare part of a day but not all day - boxing stuff up to move to duplex this weekend.
    I didn't want to be too forward, but yeah if you are offering, it would be super helpful for a 5 mile test drive.

    Let's shoot for noon at the triple xxx Saturday? If you need to get your wheelin' on, Sunday is fine too.

    Thanks for meeting up with me today, really helped me feel good about 255s. Now I just need to hunt for one more rim and it's all good to go. Got a lead on one, we shall see...


    That was a good time shootin the breeze, too!

    I am interested in going with 255s when these tires go bald. Chicken, did you get the 255s?
