That reminds me of the "gentleman" that came into my shop the other day wanting all-terrain tires for his Chevy Malibu. I thought I misunderstood and asked, "You mean all-season tires?" To which he replied, "No, I have a dirt driveway with not much gravel on it, I wanted something all-terrain, like a truck tire." I calmly explained to him that most manufacturers wouldn't offer tires anywhere near the size he needed in an "all-terrain" tread pattern. I showed him the most aggressive car tire I could get, but he wanted something "gnarlier." Yep, I made the same expression you just made . Didn't even get a chance to explain how poorly his Malibu would ride with tires like that on it...
