"ouch! I'm sure that was no fun.
The word "terrifying" comes to mind.
Today I drove it down to Discount Tire to have the tires rotated and balanced. They pulled a nail out of one of them and plugged it for me.
The guy helping me talked me out of rotating them. He said it wouldn't make much of a difference because they are evenly "worn out". He said he would not count on them to make it through the summer... Bummer. I had a feeling they would say something like that because they have nearly 48,000 miles on them and are 5 yrs. old.
So now I have to shop for tires. Advise welcome!!!
I loved the original BFG Mud Tires that came with it new in 2008. The KO2s I have now were great off road but noisy on the road and crappy in slushy conditions in comparison. I'm open to your suggestions! I drive almost 50 miles a day for work now so something a little more comfortable on the pavement would be nice if I don't have to sacrifice the off road capability too much.
