    Your Dad knows good tires. I run 750/16s all year round. Pizza cutter tires are much more responsive and have serious foot pounds, to actually get real traction not slide around on top. Fat tires are for people who have watched too much Fall Guy and pro wrestling.

    Up here, like talked about on GN, we have Winter. You can't just toss on a mudding tire and drive it on the road and say F the noise. Because mudding tires are absolute garbage on Winter road, would actually be better off driving in the ditch than the road since some of them are great in deep snow.

    So it's kind of a pain, if you have a truck and you are driving it in Winter, but want a good set of mud tires, you need to find a nice set of MT's, you can't go extremely radical like Southerners can :( But the Goodyear MT/R's are rated up there with true mud tires, and the Kevlar sidewalls really allow them to hit the rocks without having to worry about puncturing a sidewall.

    Mud you want that gap to release the mud, I think your average mud tires cleans the lugs out at about 3 - 5mph, where as a good MT/R is a bit higher but a really good MT/R like the Goodyear is only about 6 or 7mph, and allows Winter driving. Also, a tire like the 900-16 doesn't look to be a very good rock tire, and up North (especially Northern MN) is all about rock.

    German engineering eh? As someone who can change their own windshield wiper fluid (that's a bit of sarcasm there, see it :rolleyes:?) I have to say that I'm not fond of German engineering. It's like Japanese engineering but instead of having two adjustment brackets for something that only needs one, they have three and it uses security torx 8.3772mm bolts.

    In a few years don't be surprised that you need to call BMW and profess your love for ze vaterland in order to pop the hood.

    Furthermore the contemporary automotive industry is pretty globalized. It's more appropriate to say that a car is "XX% American", than it is to say "it's American".

    No offense to the good w1zzard.

    Why would I call BMW for an Audi? BMW from everything I heard goes to shit after about 100k miles on it.

    But I do agree with you on the rest of it. They use a triple square torx which is a pain to find. Everything is torx, everything is metric, everythign is cramped.
    I still love my car though..

    Okay so enough about german cars. It's an Ameican bad fucking ass club. Not car club. :)

    Just make sure it's maskless so they get a good view of the eyeballs popping.

    Its not just us Aussies that get triple charged its all the countries that we export to as well, we tripled the price of iron ore to China and they excepted it with out blinking an eye. Then we get the crappy imported shit from other countries (like Petrol, Clothes, food etc) and get charged triple what its worth, it sux big time.

    Fact is we do have a great economy and we know it, this is why we charge lots to other countries course they need it, and we export alot of stuff that us Aussies don't even see and use :shadedshu I wish we would stop it and give us Aussies the good stuff for once?

    No no no no no no you got it all wrong, we don't have one of the worse tax systems we have THE worse tax systems in the world. We get tax on our tax, and then just for good measure they will tax that to :banghead:

    I dislike this Country more then i like it. We have good things here but we also have alot of bad things (mainly the government) Carbon Tax got introduced today i think? Oh FFS :mad:
