Default New Shoes on the ride...

Put new BFG Traction T/As on the SSEi. H rated and amazing in the rain. Of course my old tires were below the wear bars, so anything is better than what was on there.

My Bonneville and now my wife'* 2001 Grand Prix GT are the first cars I've ever owned that actually wore the tires perfectly evenly over the entire surface of the tires, without grinding off either the inside or outside edge first. Gotta love our rides! Nice shoes!

This week has been a good test for them. Been more rain than I want to see for a while! Snow will be a real test for them too.

One word:

SIPE.

Just do it. You won't regret it at all, in any weather.
