Cool Tires

So I decided it would be in my best interest to swap out my 32 good year wrangler mud tires for some super awesome racing tires..

Figure it would be super cool looking! maybe through some neon lights underneath my Jeep too.. yeah.

Hahahaha

Yeah, yeah! THAT's the ticket! But for the racing tires to look right you'll need to lower it. They can tell you all about how to do that over at the Pirate board. I don't think anyone here really has a handle on that. They'll tell you how, but it'll be bad advice.

EVERYTHING's easy for the guy who doesn't have to do it.

And don't forget the stickers! In the old days STP, Iskendarian and Hedman were the hot ones, but there's probably something faster now. I don't keep up with that stuff any more.

This is awesome! Haven't seen a thread like this in a while. I am going to run out and get some chocolate bars, graham crackers and marshmellows. This should really get flaming hot in here in no time!

I would not mind an STP sticker for the side of the 8-track player in the garage.
And the wife did get a STP cap from Vince Granatelli once at the Indy 500. It's pink, so I don't wear it often.

Yeah yeah stickers those are great... make me go faster too. Maybe I'll even get dual exhaust except its coming out of the same muffler and really is just regular exhaust with two pipes coming from the muffler.

but should I black it out or chrome it out? I already know im replacing the 32s with some nice racing tires but I should also invest in some oversized spinning rims.

How about this?


Be careful, if you google "pink tail pipes".
