new tires for the diesel
Got some new tires on Tuesday!
Found a local shop that could get 35" BFGs for my 16.5s, so I ordered a set.
Ive missed these tires! The Goodyears were ok, but performance-wise, these tires are phenomenal. For those that remember I used to run these, but then for a while a few years back no one could get any. I thought they were disco-d (like most other 16.5s) and gone forever (which is when I switched to the 37s), but these days theres plenty of em out there. So I happily jumped on the chance to get another set. Only been on a couple days, but man I love em.
And for a little bit of tech, I have them balanced with Counteract Balancing Beads, which are basically the same thing as Equal (you can get them on Ebay). Little glass beads inside the tire. Glass is nice because it wont get all clumpy from moisture like the cheaper ones that are basically sand. I used 12oz bags which is a bit much, probably could've gotten away with 10oz, but a little extra doesn't hurt. And theyre smooth as glass on the highway.
