Well, I knew I would have to "TB" the top, but how do I secure the bottom without the three posts?

In hind-sight, 17"s are the new 16"s...

Then I could have run 35 series tires which chicks really dig.

Garage sale was my first time in Portland, and I was like "why is everyone talking shiz about the roads here, seem pretty decent to me??"

BOOOOM biggest damn pothole I had ever seen in the middle of a fairly smooth road, thanked my 55 series tires and motored on.

The freeways are made of glued P gravel? I don't even know how roads are made like that? Tiny cobblestone

That would be pavement. LOL Sometimes a rock/oil slurry to smooth it out a bit.

I think it's the excessive use of studded tires before and after the snow season that contribute. I grew up in the freeze / thaw area of Michigan where pot holes were part of the deal. But the "wagon wheel" troughs in each lane in Portland cause my poor old DL to wander. At least that's what I tell people.

I assumed studded tires, in NV the roads are payed for by the casinos pretty much, so they are in a constant state of "re-pave" they don't get too bad even with the snow winters and chains/snow tires.

However, the constant state of repair means that the state flower should be changed from the sagebrush (seriously, state flower is tumbleweed) to orange traffic cones.

CA roads really aren't much better.

How does the dizzy cap and contacts look? Are they any sort of corroded or slightly moist?
