So I bought two tires to replace the worn front pair on the van yesterday. I was surprised by how dramatically different the tread depths were when compared side by side. Mmmm, that's some nice traction right there. The rear tires will remain old and worn for now though.
Let me put my best tires forward!!!!
So with a shiny new windshield and two sparkly firm tires my dad took it down to get a state inspection and it passed!
Pics later. Be warned, the paint job and interior look perfectly suitably beat-up to serve as a "first car".
