    I've had a bunch of bullshit problems with tires this year too. I cut one by accident driving back in the toolies up a junk-strewn path that goes to an old hobo jungle near West Junction in Houston. The fucker went flat in five seconds. It was a sidewall cut, so there was no use trying to repair it. Had to change it out in a mudhole, then get it replaced. I was pissed.
    On my way up to Longview to rescue Tex, Stretch and I had to replace a tire that went out of balance, and turned out to have a curb bruise bubble. It was fucked, and the other one was worn, so I replaced them both. $225. Fucking Wal-Mart.

    Moral of this story: The Seven P's.

    Proper Prior Planning Prevents Piss Poor Performance.

    since we are on the subject, does anyone know anything about when a tire is illigally bald?i bought a spare and the guy was like "man you got to change all youre tires because they are iligally bald, they wont last much longer."

    anyone know about this?

    When maybe?

    i believe its when you have less then 1/16 of an inch left. thats like if you take a penny or dime(not sure). if you turn it head down, and put it inbetween treads. if the hair line thing is all showing your tires are illegally bald.

    Yeah. I was driving down the street and my entire wheel broke off of the axel. The center was still bolted on but was so bent up so it was hard as fuck to get unbolted. Took close to an hour. I didnt have my trusty screw driver with me so it took a long time to get into the trunk. Fuck a bucket.

    i rented that movie too

    anyway im pretty sure its 1/8 inch
    but really it will last a while longer
    ive ridden on steel belt for a month
    although i wouldnt recommend it

    i love the used tire place near me
    i suggest you find one also
    tires range from $10-20.oo a piece
    and they are in damn good shape
    sure beats $90-100.oo a tire
