Default just a friendly reminder.

Always check your lug nuts after getting new tires. Only had two lug nuts remaining once I stopped. One half way loose.

Torque torque torque!!!!!!!!!

33 x 10.5 15 TSL Radials. Didn't have LTB's in stock. So far, enjoying the tires, other than the wheel almost falling off.

Travis to the rescue! Good to see the old Weld Racing wheels and the Klune deflators still in use. I have another spare deflator for you next time we get together. I'm guessing you'll really like the difference, on the road, the new TSLs will make and that you will notice a little less traction off road than the LTBs gave you.

I love the deflators and wheels! Sadly dont know how much longer the wheels will last. The mounting holes got pretty rounded out while the lug nuts came loose/off. See what happens Wed morning.... Steve, could you send me a pm for the cost of the wheels? Want to be ready when I go to the shop wed. TIA! And yeah, love the highway driving on TSLs vrs LTBs. Will get to test out the off highway this next week. I think for what I do, the TSLs will be great.

Those wheels haven't been in production for years, Perry. I tried to find a single five years ago for the spare and couldn't. I hope you have better luck. All Weld makes now is the "modern" style stuff that has no appeal to me or most anybody else that actually wheels their rig. The really good thing about those old Welds was that they were forged aluminum and not cast. Stronger and lighter but mucho $$$. Sorry to read that the one got so bunged up.

Bummer about the wheel Perry. But your new tires look great. I bet you'll like those TSL Radials. I was planning on switching to those after my LTB's wore out on the old FJ40, but never got the chance. Hmmm.. FJ60 is due for tires soon. Wonder what I can find in a 16" rim size?
