Default New Tires, New Pics

I finally broke down and got new tires. Bought some used crappy tires in spring, that I thought would hold me over for awhile, come this winter, I finally had enough of sliding around.

Before Shot


Couple of afters. Not the greatest, sorry.

265/70 Uniroyals

Old ones were 245/75, so not much of a visual difference, but you can tell when you drive it.

the best part is, they were 25 cheaper than the 245/75 tires of the same brand.

Thanks guys. It's amazing what a new set of tires will do for looks, not to mention handling. can't wait for it to get warmer to get it all cleaned up again.

The ride is a big improvement over the last tires. Maybe a little more harsh, but atleast it's vibration free. I was going to get the front end aligned after getting these tires, because it was pulling to the right. Got the new tires on and it drives straight as an arrow.

I can notice a difference in tire size! Glad to hear it rides better too.
