Got the tires for the Ranger I was talking about.
The plan is these will actually replace the winter tires but they still have a season left in them yet and the steel junk yard rims they are mounted on are getting questionable due to rust from the road salt. Since this set set me back $1,500, I'll need to save up some money for 5 BFG KM3s, TPMS sensors and new rims to replace the crusty junkyard rims. Still going with steel since they are more easily bent back into shape in the field than aluminum. I thought about just cleaning and paint the old rims but the wheel design would be darn near impossible to clean properly and where the corrosion is worse is where accessibility is at it's worse. Better to be safe than sorry. I'm looking at these:I always like getting new shoes and one thing I don't like is worn out shoes. And, for a 4x4 I like rugged tires.
To do a good job? Oh, I’m sure! To get you home and hold air? Not so much. Just a sledge or a hand maul and maybe a pry bar or two.Yes, once you bend an alloy wheel it is not like a steel wheel. I used to straighten steel wheels at our shop. It's kind of an art.
I have massaged plenty of Honda Civic wheels back to shape with a sledge hammer for girls that hit curbs when I ran AAA calls in So Cal. I agree it's an art.Yes, once you bend an alloy wheel it is not like a steel wheel. I used to straighten steel wheels at our shop. It's kind of an art.
