I've read a lot about grooving tires and I guess there is a lot of science involved and variables that change how they grab. Looks really good especially for a first time. I'm impressed.

Why not just buy a MT rather than cutting ATs?

I'm glad you asked......because Falken doesn't make one yet and from what they tell me the MT's are 18+months from evolving, and longer before they would be available for retailers. I love the Sumitomo rubber compound these tires have. Stickier than my MTR's and tougher sidewalls than the MTR or the BFG's. The Falkens perform great the way they are, but I have 2 sets and I wanted to compare how they worked with bigger voids. I have a feeling they will work awesome. The only complaint I have about the Falkens is that they run small.

Do you find that they follow grooves and ruts on the roadway? I have them on our FJ and they are horrific if the pavement is rough.

I have them on my XJ and Commander, and i never had an issue with wandering on uneven roads. Maybe because mine are only 31" tall on both Jeeps...

Not really. I assume you mean like driving on 215? I'll say this, the newer the tire the worse that is and it's not specific to one brand. I put new tires on my wife's old civic and it was all over the place in the grooves and the worn tires didn't do it. When we bought our Durango, it did the same crap. Now those tires have about 13,000miles on them and it's starting to not track as bad. But my 37"s so far as best as I can tell they don't but I also have bomb diggity steering that has absolutely zero bumpsteer and an assist ram. My wheel only moves when I move it and that's by design.

So wow, it looks like new frontier took all of its online ordering stuff off of their website. Either they are hiking up the prices or they are following suite with cheaperthandirt

For my normal shopping i hit tobacco leaf. Normally the location on eastern.

Pheasant cigars is good.

Havana cigar bar is good on paradise

Paiute smoke shop is aite but cheap

Casa Fuente is amazing for a drink and a smoke but speedy. It's kind of an 'occasion' place in the forum shops

Race truck has window nets! Started the door bars too but didn't like them so I'm holding off to talk with the owner about his thoughts on them when he gets in town tonight. Next two days should be cold but fun assuming all goes well with the truck!

I just can't get into the cigar thing, maybe I'm doing it wrong but I hate the smell and I don't see the appeal other then trying to look cool. Everyone I've tried has left absolutely the worst taste in my mouth. I guess I'm just too pu$$y for them or something.
