Default Oh how I love that new tire smell!! ha ha

After 7 months of driving on the terribly worn out and weather checked crapyears that were on my F-150 when I got it I finally saved up enough pennies to put some new rubber on it. They are the Firestone destination AT's in the stock 275-65-18 size but they do look sweet. All the guys at work have these on there fullsize trucks and they swear by them so I thought id give them a shot. Im normally a BFG guy but they wanted almost $400 more for a set of BFG AT's.

Before:


After:








and i tried to get pics of my clean interior but i fail at picture taking. ill post them anyways though. I just mounted my Droid car mount too.



so far in the 13 miles ive put on the tires they are awesome! lol they are smooth as glass and quiet, well see how they do in the snow come winter time...

Yeah had you asked me a year or so ago if i would ever buy a set of firestones i would have laughed at you but ive seen how these tires handle the snow and how long they last so i decided what the hell, ill try them out. plus i couldnt bring myself to pay $1200 for a set of BFG's. 18" rims suck! lol

A guy I wheel with is a Firestone fan. Its rubbed off on me a little. He runs the MT's but its also on his DD and they've held up very well.

Oh, I love those floor mats too. Guy I work with has the same ones.
