Had to take off the Swampies

It was a sad day for me, actually it started yesterday. So that would make it a sad weekend. I had to go my dads to help work and my ranger was just the right size to run around the orange grove to do the work. (4wheelers were to small) Well my brother was lookin at my truck and notice my tires. They were seperatin and splittin. GRRRRRRRRRRR. But when I had to drive home I was scared to but did it anyway. So today I went and got 4 new tires. Call the 4wd shop from where I got them, he said they would give me my money back, my brother wants to keep them. So he can use them on his woods/huntin truck. (Its a lil yota) and if any blow it won't mess up much of a truck. There's only 1 bad one but dad said better safe than sorry. I agree cause I gotta take the interstate to and from work everday. I'm just a lil bummed bout it all right now. But I got 4 new 31x10.5x15 Cooper Mesa A/P.

Couldn't wait til Monday for the other tire shops to open, went to Tire Kingdom and my friend Cameron gave me a good deal on these. He didn't have any 32 in stock besides BFG's and I didn't wanna pay outta my bass for those. Especially spur of the moment.

Kumho tires are cheap www.tirerack.com if you're interested. Small tires suck :( I have 29s on.

Ok Plan B - Find a matching truck and steal their better tires.

I know and all bout the hwy's but I love that sound. Actually any tires can seperate, theres always gonna be a bad one in the bunch. It not just swampies, dad had one on his old dually that seperated. But anyways I talk to the guys at the shop and they are gonna pay me ALL of my money back and of course they gotta take those back. I'm still bummed cause my truck looked so sweet with them on it.
