    !!MAN!! I had a long afternoon, JUST got "in." Went clear up on the S hill of Spokamentro, to look at some tires, and mentioned I had to go back through the Valley to look at some parts, and he says "what kind of parts?" AND I END UP giving this guy with the tires (bought the tires) ANOTHER 150 for some 5.7 heads, complete intake/ throttle body and coil packs!!!!

    THEN I went out to the Valley and bought a 2 piece RAM driveshaft for 10 bucks, and THIS guy has a WHOLE RAFT of interestin Ferd stuff. NICE 57 Ford 2 dr with a great big stroker of some kind, a 62 Falcoon him and "his son's first car project" they are full cage and backhalf, and some sort of bored / stroked 460 in that. AND a little 47?? Ford pu RAT with a big Ford in THAT thing.

    SO THEN I came clear back home, dumped off the tires, and THEN went back UPTOWN to buy a SECOND set of ??snow tires?? and 8 hole wheels.

    It's ....been..........a day

      Better decode the manufactured date on the tires. I wouldn't trust anything over 6 years old regardless of how they look.

      Well THIS morning was as hard or harder than yesterday afternoon!!! I just got done about 1 oclock PM DISmounting EIGHT 8 lug tires, and REmounting the 4 that will (I hope) go onto the WWIII I be doin' nuddin' da res'o' da day!!

      Only thing I had, screenshot of the tires / wheels.............

      which resulted in 4 empty 1500 series wheels

      and finally, 4 mounted tires on these nice wheels I bought earlier, from a VERY pretty divorcee, whos ex must have been a retard, for 150 bucks I think

      Well the hard work.........and more of it tonight.......all finally paid off

      Some guy left a message on my phone while at work, I called him after 330, took the new tires and wheels up to get them balanced, and barely got home when he showed up and paid 100 for the 1/2 T wheels the tires CAME on. So the price of the tires is now only 200 + another 150 I think I paid for the wheels. And so got out the jack and put 'em on!!

        Tell me about it. I had the sidewall blowout on two of the tires on the boat trailer, both LOOKED brand new but were 10 years old.

        Thanks, this whole deal has been a HELL of a lot of work. When I bought those wheels--which came with bald tires......it was near freezing, dark, and absolutely POURING rain. By the time I got them down the driveway and loaded into the Ranger, I was SOAKED!!! The only upside was the absolutely gorgeous young divorcee I bought'em from. She was a REAL sweetheart!!! I bet her ex is sorry he wronged her!!
