Unexpected new tires
 
So, I was cruising in to work Friday morning and crapping my pants wondering why my front end was starting to shake, whats wrong now!?!? It was also pulling to the left. I get into work and find this:

:mad::mad::mad:So, at lunch I headed over to discount tire and cashed in on my replacement certs. 1 free tire and 3 prorated discounts for the others (5-6 32nds left). Decided to go with the Falken Rocky Mountain ATS in a 245/65R17. They drive nice and straight, much better than my old Bridgestones. Road noise is the same or better and I think handling has improved some. They have only been on for a day so I haven't got the chance to try them in a low traction situation but they look aggressive enough to handle what I do. Heres pics!:D

I bought a set of those Friday too. Apple Valley discount tire. Same size. I like them. I arrived at work Friday morning with a right front tire at 10 or so psi. Filled it up before leaving for work, so I decided to get a new set all around.

Ha nice, I was at the Shakopee discount. Before moving to Prior Lake I lived in Eagan and Rosemount and always went to Apple Valley, they put my Bridgestones on the Jeep 2 years ago and tires for my wife's car. The manager Terry there is a great guy, always helped me out with what I needed. Well, time will tell how these tires go, but so far I am loving them!
