Default New Tires & Wheels!!

Vincent has new kicks!
One of the first things I wanted to do was purchase new tires. I was once fearful of stoplights, on a hill, in the rain!

Because I was able to get a great deal on the tires, I picked up a 5th full size tire to rotate in as a spare. This should prolong the life of the tires. The spare will live on the roof of the car eventually.

After installing the tires, I noticed a slight "rub" coming from the front when I turned sharp and slow. My truck seems to have a TBar lift on it, not a body kit. After circling a parking lot a few times, I determined that it was due to the mudflap on the front. Removing those is next on the list.
