Default Re: Snow Day...

1999 Ford F-150. 2 Door cab, 4.2L V-6, 5-Speed manual, rear wheel drive.

I think your Ranger weighs about the same as my F-150, its been awhile since I've checked and my memory isn't too great.

My front tires are bald, but I should be getting new ones soon. I also need to get it rebalanced, it pulls to the left really badly and causes the tires to wear unevenly.

I wish I could get ahold of tires like that, but P235/70R16 tires are about 110 a piece at the cheapest, and those look like they would be a lot more than that.

Nah, yours weighs more... decent bit more. It's a half ton pickup, its a lot bigger.

These only cost me $76 a piece. 225/75/R14

o man...you need to come drive here in Brampton Ontario, the people here are such bad drivers, they think because they have SUV's that they own the road.

I remember i was driving along Bramlea road (a main road here in Brampton) and some guy flew by me driving a Cadelac Escalade....so ofcourse i was doing like 40km/h (mind you, we got atleast 30cm of snow) and thought he was crazy for blowing past me. Next thing you know it, i made it to mayfield road...and that exact same car was rolled over in a ditch, and i thought...WOW MORON!!

yeah, crazy drivers these days...just watch out for yourself.

Well, having a snow day isnt too exciting.... I finally went and bought the Dark Knight, and slept in til 9(not in that order) but it was still really boring... after getting out of normal sleeping routine, it took a whole Monster to wake me up, lol, and a drive in the snow.
