Well, I still have a bit of a bad taste in my mouth because of Firestone. I very vividly recall the day when everyone showed up for work and the bosses came out and said, "By the way, fellas, starting today you are working for exactly half of what we paid you yesterday". No, I did not work for Firestone.
I suppose it's time to get over that. Perhaps that gave more workers a chance to reach pension age. Now just about all tires are made elsewhere.
Wisdom would shop for the best regardless.
That's quite a truck you have. I can match 2 things with yours- it's a Ranger and Bilsteins all the way around. Only had it a couple of months.
'02 XLT 4X4 Stepside SUP CAB 4.0 MOTOR.
I just put new 4600s on it and have wheel bearing hub assemblies on the way. Timken.
The truck is really clean for a 14 year old. 105,000 miles. Runs great. Suspension has been neglected.
Thanks for responding.
