worn out tires?

How do you tell when to replace your tires? Do you use a tread depth gauge or just eyeball it?

Thanks

well one way is you no longer have traction LOL





just kidding you

but in all reality the traction , the handling on pavement or wet trails , when you right or left and get no turning at speed .. when ya go over uneven terrain like rock and tires keep spinning v/s forward movement. you get tread punctures constantly do to tread depth or better said lack of .. these are some of the things to look for

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us
