    I've had good luck with falken in the past. Had some rt-615's on my auto x wheels with the subie. Those were amazing and actually wore really well. Thinking I should just stick with what has worked in the past.

    And Welcome to the forum gogoman!

    My dad had a set of Falkens on his Corvette. My mom had the funniest look the first time I said "Those are some nice Falken tires da
    d!" He knew but she was shocked!

    Deuxdiesel, thanks for the offer! That's really nice of you. Actually the guys at Serra Toyota installed them for me a couple of days ago when I went in for my 10,000 mile oil change/maintenance.

    I love the look of the stance with the 1.25" wheel spacers. I'm riding stock rims and tires and it's a subtle improvement but I notice it, which was the whole point, haha.

    Thanks again!

    That sounds like my dad's mom. She had a pretty colorful volcabulary and was not afraid to use it or state her opinion on things.

    Nothing up here yet. We are out the door for a concert in Flint in an hour though. We aren't driving. We are living dangerously and putting it in the hands of a Jeep Liberty.:eek:

    I have known the guy forever though. We should be fine.

    Jeep Liberty FTW! I put the same snow tires on my daughter's Liberty as my Taco (Firestone WinterForce) and it is awesome in the snow and slush. I wouldn't take it on a long trip, as it's pretty small, but for local jaunts and to/from school and work, it's a pretty good vehicle. Hope this snowfall isn't too rough tonight.

    Mark isn't a wheeler but he said his only complaint is the shitty gas mileage. I am home so it wasn't so bad.

    Thank you thank you lol Jk. We actually pulled her car out of the garage yesterday. Got sick of waiting and decided what's it gonna hurt. I'll just wash it really really good!
    I'd love to go there one of these times, but having a hard time taking the black truck offroading again! Maybe there's a fat chance I will get my hands on a quad I could barrow or something.

    If I am here, I am 100% in. I am the photographer for the division best warrior competition which is a week in the first part of may. But if that doesn't overlap, you can count me in :D

    The dates are may 4th and 5th and the more the better, so anyone that reads this is invited.

    Matt you don't really even need to take your truck out, there will be pleanty of people to ride around with. We can probably even get you for a ride in one of the built trucks that will be there. I might even let you ride the quad I bring when I'm not, might be to much bike for you though :p. Only quad I have good to go is my last race bike.
