waste of interco

some old man came into the shop today for a coolant flush (86 by drivers livcense B-day) and he had interco TRXus tires on his 95 K1500. he said he lived on a dirt road and didnt want to get stuck so he got them, but he had 15,000 miles on them and they were damn near worn right out. granted, it didnt look like he was too into rotating them, but what a waste of a mud tire...a dirt road? one of those amount of $$$$$$ does not = sense

Re: waste of interco

He probably didn't have anything else to spend his $$$ on. But I agree, that was probably a waste of tire. Unless he knew they'd wear out and he just wanted them. That's how most folks are with mud tires, you know they'll wear terrible, but you just gotta have em. [img]images/graemlins/burnout.gif[/img]

Re: waste of interco

or that dirt rd turns it a sloppy muddy maybe snowy mess for a few months outa the year, better be safe than sorry.

plus if your old and have money what r you gona spend it on, just answer me that,

yeah youd probly have a shop full of a few difrent tire and wheel combos just to try out, just cause you had the money. I know if I had the money id for sure try a few tires just to try even if they are rumored to only get 5000 miles ot of em.

jeeeees we waste money all our lifes, and now that some old man is able to waste it how he wants your all givin him sh!t shame on you.

now go scramble every penny together that you can find and put in your piggy bank.

Re: waste of interco

damn dude. go out for the evening and relax. I'm pretty sure that this is still America...I've had far too many family members and friends fight and die for this country. they did that to keep us free. And as a free citizen of this country I"m entitled to bitch about wahtever i feel like. so are you...but it seems like a pretty small matter to get that fired up about.
