Hey everybody,
The pothole that ate two tires only took a nibble. Took my Borbet Type Ts/Potenza RE-71s to a Dub & pimpin chromes place called Aranda’s Tires in the ghetto. Blocks from Scott H in fact. Rims straightened, tires remounted & balanced.
Y’all sittin.
$30. OH YEAH i couldn’t believe it meself. Was reminded that most of MY shimmy came from old, out o bal, crappy tires. Haven’t tried them at triple digits yet, but their highway behavior is encouraging.
Maybe sharking before suspension. Or maybe brakes as the rust on the hubs is now quite visible. =P

But man do they look good.

Don’t They

Hope everyone has a happy & safe holiday weekend (well you Murricans at least). Mine just got MUCH better.


94 530iT&A, Helga; Haven't squealed these tires yet!
92 Sentra SE-R, Teddy; Assaulting toll collectors regularly. SCREEEEECH.
