New Shoes

I put a new set of tires on the Hummer yesterday. I have had a plan for a while to get something more aggressive, but common sense got the best of me. I went with Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revos. They have a good deep tread for off-roading, but still drive nice in the city.

I bought a set of stock rims I found on Craigslist for $300 about a month ago. Unfortunately, they did not come the the TPS (tire pressure sensor) modules, but I managed to pickup a set of four for only $120. I mounted the new tires on the extra set of rims to allow me to finish using the miles left on the old tires. They still have lots of tread for city driving.

I put a lot of work trying to get the old set to fit in the storage unit. With some effort and sweat, I managed to accomplish the task.

The day was wrapped-up with dinner on Redondo Pier and walk by the coast in Palos Verdes.
