At least you found before hand.. other than that it just plain out just sucks. but on the bright side I could be something like a blown turbo or a grenaded rear

Hey atleast it was fixable. I tend to put sticks in the sidewalls and shoulders.

I wanted to get those wheels too! He was just too fair away.

I've had a screw in my tire now for about a year... Slowly the head is getting worn down. Trying to see how long it will last!

i thought they were just the spares you find under the truck, they turned out to be the polished aluminum alloys.
i didnt want to get them since you were wanting them but once you said no, i was all over them like white on rice on a white paper plate with a glass of milk in a snow storm!

Well you could bring them up here for me if you want! lol Were they the ones with holes or spokes? I like the 18's with spokes and looking for those so i powdwer coat them black.

Atleast they will be put to good use!

One time I was helping a buddy change the ic boots out on his 02. went and drove it. windows down you hear this click, click, click ,click going down the road. we look at each other with the WTF look. Go back and look around and right there in fron on a brand new 38x15.50x16.5 TSL is a 1/4 extension sticking out of the tire!! That was the one he lost cleaning the tools up. I got a buddy to put a plug/ patch in it. lasted forever.

I once had a truck with a screw in it like that. It started leaking a little to fast, had to air up the tire every other day. Just upgraded the screw to a little bigger one. Lasted for another year, until I sold the truck.
