Boy did I take a ride yesterday. Found a 'road' I'd never been on, probably due to its un-maintained status as a Class 4 road.
But I made it.
Bald right front, scratches down its right flank, gravel in every possible location, dings in the windshield, lovin' it.

And I drove the wife's CR-V 440 miles Saturday to boot.

Noticed I'm 6500 miles since my last oil change, which got me thinking why my cars demand so few repairs.
It's not like I rigorously maintain them.

I think it's because I drive them so hard they don't dare break.

Or perhaps it's because everything gets really used: Full suspension strokes, engine wailing, transmission straining.



Mileage staying above 27MPG.

Just ordered me a set of
Waterfall Eco Dynamic Extra Load All-Season Tire 225/50R17 98W

for $214.37. That includes state tax and free delivery.

Kinda excited, 'cause it's getting impossible to drive the Kizashi on rainy roads :shock:



Mileage remains above 27MPG no matter how bad I behave.

I feel ya...serious lateral drift in the rain through the twisties on the worn Kumhos. Passed state inspection for tread depth, but not passable the way I drive on them. Can't hold the lane and the speed safely any longer. The car's traction control and AWD systems do a really nice job of keeping the car heading in the direction it's pointed under throttle though. Without the TSC, it's not good at all. I drive like a maniac, but have to remain in my lane.

The fronts are bald (he said, laughing), and are simply undriveable on many paved roads.
Even on non-paved surfaces they can provide 'interesting' moments of zero adhesion.

They're so bald I put a stock wheel/tire assembly in the trunk so I have an immediate swap, and the doughnut spare, at hand.
Just in case......

Bald tires arent so comfartable either :D. I have the "black box" out of my trunk so i could put a fullsize spare wheel in the thrunk. Under the wheel i kept my tools in a blanket.
