So this happened Thursday afternoon...
...and remember, it's never too soon.
Halifax 2013 to 2021
Love how it looks like one of the ships in the harbour hasn't moved since 2013. :P
Another day at the office, making DG fly
4x new at tires for the truck.
deets? I’m also starting to look around for new tires. Not digging the Wranglers anymore
I went with Yokohama Geolander G015 A/Ts. Crappy tire has them for 40% off. $800 for 4 vs the typical $1500 I spend. They have a great warranty and good reviews online. Not as aggressive as the bfg at KO that I usually go for... But I'm not an extreme off roader anymore and want something that I can take for hunting/winter roads and run year round. Couldn't pass up the price on these.
I found boxes and boxes of plastic grocery bags at a Superstore in NB. Think I could demand a premium for these on the black market in NS?
What size are you running?
275 65 18
Warning to others interested in these tires (275/55R20 in my case): Crappy Tire has a 4ply version (117H) for the $859 price, and a 10ply version (120S) for $1463. Know your load rating needs before buying.
Mine are 10 ply. LT 275 65R18 123S.
I tow a heavy load when I go hunting and need the extra room for weight of a moose or whatever on my way home. Definitely need 10 ply!
Nice! I wish the size I needed were on clearance as well.
I have K02s at the moment, and they've been good to me, but I can definitely live without the offroad performance and replace it with a more road based tire but still retain the 'mountain with snowflake' symbol. These Geolanders in 10ply seem to fit the bill, but I wouldn't mind a better price than what's available now.
Exact reason I went with them. I've always run bfg KO's then KO2s. But can't pass up this deal. And like you said, I just don't do the off-roading to warrant such an aggressive tread anymore. Hopefully I don't regret it! They should do me for the next couple years. The tires that came on my new truck just weren't cutting it, this seems to be a good happy medium between road based/all terrain. . I just don't wanna be the one getting stuck this hunting season!
Making a political statement about a politicial statement. Nice.
And right behind the PC bus. Lucky you!
Looks like it's passing the liberal bus to me. Sounds about right.
And who's directly downwind of whichever bus is in front? You and me.
