Title: Victim of the horrid stock tires
Post by: jddirty on April 13, 2013, 08:04:41 AM
Well, after 23315 miles, a cross country jaunt, countless trails, cacti, rock gardens, and one deadly trip to the hallmark store, a Rugged trail has bit it.  Regrettably not able to swap out all of them for better tires at this point so i will be hoping for a patch, and if not just replacing it...uggh.

Puncture or just bad wear?

puncture on the shoulder between shoulder blocks, about a 1/2 long, two of them side by side, on the inside.  Must of run something over on the road....misery..do not think it is patchable due to location and size..if it is, may keep it as a second trail spare for now..but definetly going to replace it for daily driving and primary tire on vehicle.  Just wish I could spring for 5 new tires and be done with them..

 a buck sixty out the door, tire was 143 and change and install plus disposal made up the other 17..not too bad, all things considered..fletchers in carefree hwy...discount tire would not come down off their out the door price of 199, stating no way could another stocking dealer beat it..whoops..they were wrong.   I honestly think the guy was looking up the wrong tire at discount, everyone quoted me around 150 to 155 for tire only and they were at 163..

That sucks, I know the feeling. That's the first thing I do to a new truck is get some tires underneath it, if I can.

I'll be getting a new truck in a few mos. and I already have a nisstec lift picked out and tires too. Lol all I need is $$$$

You just missed the mod day, we are getting pretty good at getting those lifts in.  Better hurry up or you'll have to wait 4 months until the heat subsides.

I'm tied up until at least July.  Then I'll be getting a 13 CC Fronty Pro-4X or an SV 4x4
