    lol, luckily, for me at least, I live in South La, so rust is not much of a problem for me. Now hurricanes and flash floods are.
    Prime example- I was in my tire shop, went inside to go show a customer a non-fixable tire of theirs, inside a max of 2 mins, came out, my shop was almost flooding. The only thing that saved the shop from flooding was the drain that runs parralel to the doors.

    I've learned to deal with rusty bolts. Patience, PB, patience, heat, patience, PB, patience. Heat is really the ticket. If you're taking a nut off a bolt, just heat the nut nice and hot, blast a little PB in the threads and it should come right off. Bolts in a casting or other large object will come too, just takes a little more time. Make sure you use six point sockets, and get them on nice and tight. I'll often use a metric socket on SAE, and vice versa. Pound them on with a hammer if you have to.

    As for the Michelin tires, there is no substitute. They just don't make a mildly aggressive tread like the BFG ATs.
    When you hear hoofbeats, look for horses not zebras.

    I hear the complaint on no aggressive tread design. Thats Michelin's only downfall.
