did some rallying the other day... pics.

well it rained the other day, ALL DAY LONG! from the time i got up that morning at 6am until that night around 11pm. i dont know what time it started but it was a steady rain all day. anywho, since i live down about oh say a good mile of dirt/clay road out in egypt i decided what the hell, its gonna need to be washed anyway. so i turned the t/c off and let er rip. and i threw in some ebrake slides around the corners too.

well this was the end result:





ill try to get some video come the next good rain from inside the car. it sure was fun! but washing it wasnt...

no it wasnt off road. you ppl really need to start reading before you post. i said i was doing it down my dirt road. i live about a mile down a dirt road in south georgia and it was soaked and slippery and muddy. so i improvised. and im using 2 bfg scortchers and 2 fuzion hri's. hri's are on the front.

the reason I asked is cause it looks like ur tires are slicks!! not good for dirt/gravel, but the pics may not be the greatest

the scortchers on the rear look that way because they utilize a 3 tread design. the outer most part of the tire actually is slick for about 2". ill show you.



there you can see the side of the tire facing outward is bald. thats why they look that way. they actually have excellent tread in the middle and inside which is where it counts the most.
