Wow. You really burned though those quickly.
Yeah...I think it was a combination of track use and less than perfect care. These were BFG Comp-2
Next set should last longer hopefully (Nitto Motivo - only street use) and I'm getting a set for the track soon.

Set of tires for the TT...
Last set lasted like 5,000 miles only  :rofl:

And so it continues! If you're gonna run a track set, I recommend Maxxis RC1 - they're not Hoosiers but they last quite a while if you don't beat the crap out of them!

Thanks for the recommendation Shuko! I'll definitely look into these! The track tires will need to be driven to and from the track...

Bought an LED shop light, I've been wanting one for the garage since all I have is one bulb in the ceiling. Testing this one out before I buy more  :thumb

i may have to order myself that damn ac pressure valve that goes into the compressor.

from a cold start i have zero ac for 5 minutes, then it comes on and works the rest of the time.

i just wait it out in the enclosed heat box because of my headliner, hah hah.

i ended up getting two of these lights today and placing them in the midway of the garage on each side. they are great.

i may get one more to place in the center-back to better light up any engine bay work. push comes to shove I can always install the hooks and temporarily move one of my lights over to work on a vehicle.

thanks again for posting.
