Getting new tires

We just got snow and I have been procrastinating long enough on buying a new set of tires as I really don't care for the stock tires.

Well went to Fountain tire, ask for Dura Trac 265/75/15 C load only to be told there's none available on the west coast and will need to wait one month.

I said OK...put me on the waiting list.

Cool!

Firestone Destination A/T and Goodyear Duratracs (LT245/75-16 Load C) are on my short list.

They look way more aggressive once mounted, truck looks like it means business now.

Will post pictures soon when I can get out in the hills.

Like these so far on pavement, just a low hum more or less, nothing loud.




Can barely wait to try them off road.

Looking good!

What year is your Ranger? T-bar crank or other mod?

Looks great!

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
