when you know you have to swap your AT's onto the replacement that has normal street tires, after you find yourself in a tire smoking drift, in a corner you used to be able to take at higher speed with no issue......
Looked cool though....... :-)

Lmao my moms the same! Ill warn her of a new noise and not to worry and she just says ya I know, you will fix it NEXT weekend. My mother in law drove my pickup once and was freaked out and added no wonder you never have money with that gas milage! I hide stuff from my step dad though cause he will make me fix it before I leave his house. Then I owe him for the parts, when it was supposed to be a five min stop.

Edit: mother in law also thinks I can fix anything on her car because I have two ZJs in the driveway. Lol
