new darksider..

Post  jeffdiesel on Wed Jul 06, 2011 5:48 pm

Ok. Got my Hancook 215/45-18 on there and took it for a ride. I got about 40 or so psi of air in there and it rides fine. Looks kinda cool too. It takes a little more effort to change lanes or move within my lane but that is such a small difference. I took the first curve I always take at about 28 when I scrape pegs at 40 and normal speed is about 35. The second time I hit it at almost 40 and didnt feel scary or anything. I think I'm gonna like it. Also, the most important thing, I hope for super long mileage out of it.. I'm now a Darksider and proud of it.. thumbup

Alright. I'm sorry I suck at this. I tried it myself and if you copy and paste this it goes to the picture. I got that PM and went to the FAQ's and found what I was looking for but wasnt sure what it was telling me. Anyhow, I know this aint the right way of doing it but it works.



EDIT: Oh nevermind. You can just click it. Sorry I dont know much about computers..

Welcome Jeff and congrats, you'll never regret this.

"that's a good lookin tire too, now we have 3 good options for the 18" rim"
Maybe it's good to mention all 3 !
