    With the money I'll be saving not buying gas, I can get stuff for the trail limo.

    It looks like they're going be heavy as fuck, maybe even moreso than the AT3W's.

    I'll be looking to replace the Toyo AT3's before next winter. Since they're my "winter" tires, I might actually go with something less aggressive and in an SL. Probably Yokohama G003's, but I'll definitely be shopping around.

    The Toyos are showing signs of dry rot already. I installed them in April or May 2020, and have only had them on around 50-60% of the time since then, and probably around 50K miles. It's a little disappointing, to be honest.

    Other than that, I've been pretty happy with them.

    Are you happy with the performance and the dBA of your Axis 12? Like the design and looking to replace what I currently have.

    I had to look up what an Axis 12 is because I forgot that's the name of that fan bar thingy (and it's also the same name as a very popular kayak model). But yes I am happy with it for the intended purpose. Definitely loud but it has worked out well for limited desk space.

    It's cut through so air is leaking?
    Idk about high pressure line.
    Fingernail polish makes a good rock hard seal. Maybe that and a good wrap?
    Duct tape does hold the world together!.....(and zip ties).
