Starting to need new tires

Well I have a total of 9k on my truck and about 8500 on the 265 75 r 16's dunlops and I am down to the wear bars. Actually only on the rears [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] The spare and the fronts look like new. So let that be a lesson to all you kids out there. Dont do dougnuts with 900# of cinderblocks behind your rear axle. Its detrimental to tire life [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] I might see if I can get a treadlife warantee outa em just for giggles [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]
Now I'm thinking of some 255 85's.

Before anyone says it I know I'm [img]images/graemlins/lame.jpg[/img] A major waste of $$$ and I have learned my lesson.....well probably learned my lesson [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

I also Got 2 tickets and got into an accident this weekend. Its been pretty eventfull weekend, I also according to a cop almost insited a riot. Went by a bar and gave it about 50% trottle and evidently the natives didnt like it, I was just passing a car so I could get in front of em and make a turn. Cops in the parking lot said I almost started a riot and gave me a ticet for passing in the right lane(evidently you can only pass in the left lane) and a fix or repair ticket for loud exhaust so I had to put a muffler back on [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] A tempo also rear ended me. She ate my hitch and lost her hood radiator and grill and had to go home on a wrecker....it just scratched my hitch and didnt even make it to the bumper. Most entertaining part was it was my ins mans daughter.

Re: Starting to need new tires

I would definitely try and get the treadlife warranty to cover them. Thats what its for, right? [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

If they don't cover them, why not just get 2 new ones for the rear, and wait until 4 are bald before you get a new set? Just rotate front to back after each smokey burnout, and they should wear evenly [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The way you've been driving, that may be a rotation every week or 2, but get the tires somewhere like costco where lifetime rotation/balance is included, and ur good to go.

Anyone else see that "Make Every Dougnut Count" 7-11 Commercial where these kids are spinning dougnuts in a parkinglot while they're eating those 7-11 krispy kreme ripoffs?
