Default Planning ahead

Just wondering what everyone runs for winter tires. I'm going to be running my avus's so the RC's won't get trashed. NY can have some harsh winters so I want to be prepared. I'm not looking for top of the line tires however.

Sounds like a good plan. I'm just asking for tire recommendations however

check craigslist. they have good used tire prices. hopefully i dont need to run the rcs again this winter. the tires have metal showing from the weird camber wear, and theyre basically balled. looking for all seasons on craigslist.

Yea I'm thinking you have something broken/worn out back there I don't believe there should be that much camber on stock GLI suspension. Maybe post a pic on here and see what VWF has to say

Go with the jeep over the ford. Both break often but jeep parts are everywhere and usually an easy fix the F-150 motors suck ass especially when the spark plugs blow out of the head and they always like to be on the back 4 cyls. where they are extremely hard to reach.

Go for it. By the time shipping is calculated it'll probably be around the $400 range and then they'll need tires so they're yours if you want em.

I'm gonna stick it out and stay with the avus's and just throw some meaty tires on them.
