    4Runner Tire advice please.

    Sounds like you have got things under control OI... In the early 80's the tire industry was still developing radial tires and compounds and construction was still a bit of a black art ('scuse the pun). Tires are among the least understood and least maintained part of a vehicle. The average person never checks pressures and rely on their service centre to do it when they get oil changes. Every 5-10K is not sufficient and lots can happen in that time frame......and, with the advent of 10 minute oil change centres they prob still don't get pressures and levels checked. I have pretty much seen it all from 65 PSI in tires on a Corolla (customer said they looked flat) to canvas and steel belts visible instead of usable tread (customer had no idea)..

    4Runner Tire advice please.

    Usually a result of under or over inflation. Belts just don't separate anymore under normal conditions, unless it's a truck retread. So much R&D and Quality Assurance taking place at every manufacturer from Michelin to even lower cost Chinese tires.

    Hi HH...Michelin are one of the best when it comes to warrantying tires for either premature wear or cracks or other defects. Typically they will jump through hoops to keep a customer.

    4Runner Tire advice please.

    Depends a lot on your driving habits. Do you do a lot of highway? If so you may be disappointed with K02"s........great off road tire that look great, , I sold a lot, but they are quite noisy on highway. Michelin LTX MS are in my opinion the best "all 'round" if you don't plan on Winter tires. They also come in Winter compound and tread pattern. I have run the AS for 6 years and put almost 200K on 2 sets and I wouldn't go back to the Goodyear Wranglers or Pirelli Scorpions that the factory puts on. I pull a heavy trailer and opted for the LT's rather than the P series. If you want to wait a month or two Michelin rebates will be starting..

    Vintage Rod Building

    I good friend of mines' Dad used to build split cane fly and float rods back in the 50's and 60's. He is long gone now but the time involved and craftsmanship was epic. There was no fancy wrap or detail but everything was so precise and the balance was perfect. Sad to say I had a 5 wt, one of the last he built as he couldn't compete with the glass rods of the time and arthritis was setting in, but I left it in the UK in the early 70's and it didn't survive my parent's house move..๐Ÿ˜•

    All Weather Tires

    Being a tire dealer I`m going to try to stay impartial here. There are distinct differences. The All Weather tire is really a hybrid of All Season and Winter. All Season tires have a relatively straight uniform tread pattern designed to provide a good ``all `round`` performance in dry and wet weather. The tread pattern also helps to keep down road noise. These tires have the hardest compounds and longest life. All Weather tires are relatively new to the market, perhaps 5 years. They have a much `blockier`tread pattern, and softer compound. The blockier tread and softer compound provides better steering and stopping performance in wet weather (and slush) however the compromise is they are noisier and have shorter life. Winter tires, I think most are familiar with. They have in general a uniform block tread with a much softer compound. They offer significant improvement in grip, steering and stopping distance in ice and snow however they are noisier and have much shorter life. If you are buying Winter tires spend a few hundred dollars more and get a set of dedicated rims. Your tires will last longer not being taken on and off twice a year but the changeover is significantly less expensive. Just a note on Winter tires. It is not the air temps that kill them it`s the temp of the road so get them on when the road temps have had a chance to cool down and more important get รจm off before the roads heat up! I have had customers drive to Florida on Winters stay for a few months and complain when they get back that their tires are wearing too fast...

    More fishing fines laid!

    Unfortunately nothing will change until fines are increased to where they hurt!
