Thread: Tire test!

  1. #1

    Default Tire test!

    ok so this weekend my friend calls me up and asks if I want to go offroading. Of course I say yes, I just spen 600 dollars on tires and I had to test them out. it starts off fine, some mud, some hill climbs, no problem for the suburban. Now when we get to a section of the trail where ground clearance is necessary I got in his jeep. We go down one trail with some massive ruts on it and he gets stuck. Sittin on the axels in mud. We call several friends for a possible tow and once they hear where he is on the trail the responses were allong the lines of "F*** that theres no F***in way im goin anywhere near that place." So I finally give in and go and get the suburban and free his litle jeep from the mud without even so much as spinning the tires.
