    Expensive afternoon. Went into town for an appt with the audiologist and wound up with new hearing aids to the tune of $6k (oof!). Then stopped and got me some new, beautifully molded, Wildpeak AT4w's in 255/85/16 mounted up with new TPMS.

    Initial thoughts on pavement: smooth and quiet. Time to find some dirt!

    For only being 10mm narrower, they look a lot narrower. Only driven on dry pavement so far, but I like them. The C rated carcass is definitely softer and absorbs more pavement imperfections. Moderate braking has them sticking well. A few more days should give me a better idea.

    edit: I've only had a couple of minor rubs, probably wouldn't have any if I took the spacers off.

    Be very careful with random products that use legitimate batteries because they have been known to permanently damage the batteries by letting the battery(s) completely deplete themselves 100% whereas officially licensed products are made to work with the batteries and will stop before it gets to that point

    Odd, we have tornado warnings for Dane County, but I don’t see anything but whitecaps.

    Good luck and be safe-ish. I’m hearing of 70-90mph winds. That’ll blow the umbrella off a deck for sure.
