New tires and maintenance!
For those of you that don’t really think about tires, bearings, grease, brakes, etc. It’s that time of the year (at least for me). So, it’s been five years since I replace my original china bomb tires with Goodyear Endurance tires. Checking the tires this fall/winter and the tires still look new. Have made (what I call) twelve major trips on the tires that were 16 hours each trip; and other small trips each year within an hour or so from the house. Even though the tires look new I just don’t trust a set of tires after five years. So, I ordered a new set of Goodyear Endurance tires. I put the 5er up on jack stands and removed the tires and wheels. I dropped off the tires and wheels today at my local tire shop. Picking the new set up on Thursday. In the meantime, I pulled the hubs this evening and checked the brakes and bearings. All looked good! I put them all back and greased the bearings. Now I’ll feel more secure on my next trip in April with everything checked and a new pair of shoes (including the spare tire). I have a friend that has had his set of tires on for eight years and he just don’t understand why I am replacing mine since they still have good tread on them. To each is own I guess.
