Proper rubber

Sep 23, 2010 update on ansonivan's 1997 Ford e150

General Grabber MTS 109t 235/75/15 - tirerack - $99 each plus shipping.

Mounted a set of new tires last night, what a joyful experience. All four wheels had a thick layer of oxidation covered by nasty black bead sealer. Much scraping and wire brushing of the sealing area was needed to ensure a decent seal… at least until the oxidation builds up again.

All four tires had visible but mild hop/squirm an the balance machine, the worst one required 1.75oz and the others were from 1.25 to .50oz total each. Not too bad.

I’ll report back when I re-balance them in 2000 miles.
