New shoes
 
I love TireRack. I wish local shops would use the care and precision of mounting tires that TireRack does for the prices they do!

Anyway, Enkei wheels arrived for the Mazda3 with BFG rubber on 'em! Pretty geeked about getting and mounting up.

Those should look good!

Wish we got something like TireRack over here, their prices and collection are amazing.

Thanks!

I canít imagine doing business elsewhere. They have great prices and selection.

During a wicked windstorm, some heavy debris got blown on the highway and I narrowly missed hitting something heavy head on. Instead, it caught a front wheel.

The wheel is destroyed so I went back to my friends that sold me my original snow tire and wheel set 15 years ago, and he sold me some new wheels and checked out my existing snow tires and said they were still good.

I like those new shoes! And it looks like the replacement setup arrived with perfect timing...

So a year later, and the first snow storm of 2020 in the Pacific Northwest. They work great!

Going back to summer tires, it turned out my summer tires were worn to the wear bars so had to get new tires. Summer shoes are back on with new tread.
