Default My Poor Tires! * with pics *

The BF Goody'* I got in November are destroyed up front. I came out of the house to find my friend and his dad looking at my tires laughing. I was like whats going on? They where like, " do you have any idea what you did to you're tires?" I looked and Chunks of rubber where all over my wheel well and splashed up on my car like road spay. The tread, well over half gone. At that track I erased a good 10,000 miles of tread wear!! There goes another $500 down the shi**er.

Another one bits the dust do do do.

We'll just let the smiley do the talking. The ranting and raving smiley.

I wouldn't be buying those again. But look again, and make sure it'* actually YOUR rubber. Most cars that go to a prepped track get sticky VHT and other people'* rubber on their car. All of us at Woodburn did last year.

Allmachtige'* 98 looked like it had rhinolining on the rocker panels because he spun it so much on the passenger side.

BFG'* are great tires normally, they lasted a LONG time on our GMC (even after plenty of real offroading) from the abuse.

Or change ur driving habits. And ROTATE your tires.

Take them to a tire shop. They'll remove them with a special tool in an impact wrench, or dig in your trunk for the key. I have mine, but don't use it. I removed the locking lugs.

Be careful rotating tires, especially if you have directional tread
