Finally got rid of my "slicks" lol. I got a great deal on a set of 315/75/16 Kumho Road Venture A/T. So far they feel good. Ill keep posted on the wear of them. Now to order the ball joints, tie rods inner/outer, track bar, and whatever else i may need lol. Then a paint job in a few weeks.

on the side wall you will see a series of headers and numbers. temp= , traction= , speed rating= , traction= , tread wear= , and so on. sometimes the tread wear is sometimes a qtcd maybe. what numbers do you see. the tread wear is a 3 digit number. 500 is good!
tread life is directly related on how well the alignment is maintained.
