Popular Post The Fireman Posted March 24, 2016 Popular Post Share Posted March 24, 2016 After saving my pennies over the winter I finally took the plunge and ordered up 6 new tires for my B42. The originals were dry rotted pretty good and I didnt want to take a chance on blowing one this summer as we're planning on using the truck quite a bit more than we did last year. So I went ahead and ordered 4 retread drives and 2 new steers on tubeless rims...no more bias ply and split rims for this guy, I was pleasently surprised when the pricing came back at less than 3000. Spent the last 2 days getting them mounted onto the truck, I would have been done a lot sooner but when I got the old tires off the drivers side rear I found a stripped hole in the hub. At some point some one must have gotten a bit over excited and pulled all but a couple threads out of the hole leaving me with nothing to work with. They had replaced the stud with a piece of all thread and some how managed to get the nut tightened up but there was no way I was going to leave it like that. Fortunatly for me last fall Hobert69 was kind enough to sell me a complete rear axle when I was looking for a faster diff so I set to work swapping out the hub yesterday and managed to get it all buttoned back up today. I must say they do look a whole lot nicer than the old tires did, cant wait for the roads to get the last of the salt rinsed off so I can take her out for a spin. 7 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
