Re: Another Tire Thread - 265/50r20

I'm running Falken Ziex ST/Z 04s and they might be worth your consideration. I've only put around 500 miles on them but I like them. Good compromise ride and handling.

Long story short, I broke my back many years ago and use the roof rails to hobble along the side to get to my wheelchair in the back. I'd prefer to go rack-less LOL

Re: DRL Mod Kit - DRLS stay on with turn signals
