Look What I found While Offroading..

Well after doing some trails and some mild mudding.. i came across a 3 foot deep rut in CLAY, and these three BALD *** 35x12.5R17 Toyo M/T's unmounted, full of clay laying beside the rut. So I took 2 of them for added weight in the winter, and maybe one in the summer, just to make the ride a bit better..

Notice the wear on them.. they were definitely ran over inflated..

Nice. I found a actually good BFG All Terrain for a 17" rim in the woods the other day bush hoggin. We had a bad flood and I guess it carried some tires off.

i hate literers like that. why do people have to do that? just stockpile all your garbage and group together and take a family trip to the dump.

way to go for cleaning up the environment. especially if atree hugger saw that and tried to get the area shutdown.
