Mustang Memories
#11
I just got back from ordering some new BFG Radial TA’s. Only needed the two rears. Went to a local place that we are supposed to get a discount for be a local car club member. They wanted more than 207 each plus mounting and tax, was like 500 bucks. Then I went to Belle Tire, they were 175 each out the door, so 350 for the two. I asked if I could just bring the old ones in and they would change them he said no problem, whatever I was comfortable with. I then asked if I brought the car there would they just jack up the rear and remove old ones and they said no problem with that either. I ordered them and they will be put on Thursday. Will make me feel better about driving to the Ford show fo sure. Smile

 Mine are 14" and I paid $175 Cdn. Then the fun started. I bought them from a friend who runs a mobile tire service...… of sorts! He tried to balance the Magnum 500 wheels, but I ended up taking them to another tire shop in town to have them properly balanced. 500's are centerless and must be balanced with a special adaptor, mounting them by the bolt holes. That shop wanted $190 apiece and that's what it ending up costing me along with a load of frustration. 
One thing, make sure the date codes are at least close to current. BFG's will read something like 44 18 ( two of mine) week 44 of 2018, i.e. Oct 29 to Nov 4 2018.
Some places will sell you old tires if they can get away with it. The reason I bought new tires was mine were 13 years old and hard as rock.
Hope the weather hold for the weekend, not looking so promising by the latest local forecast, damn it!
Geoff.

Ya I checked the date codes on my existing tires and they are 2011, so getting kinda old. The guy I talked to even mentioned that he would make sure the date codes were current. I will definitely ask them about the balance adapter, but I’m quite certain they know what they are doing. I have been getting my truck tires and some other stuff done there, always had good luck with them. There’s very many classic cars around here in the summer, so they are familiar with the older ones.

 I just looked at the weather and it says a 40 percent chance of rain for Saturday night and into Sunday morning now. So ya, it’s starting to change. Hopefully they are wrong! I was going to pre register tonite, but I may as well wait till tomorrow.

So the latest forecast is... 20 percent chance of rain on Saturday and Sunday during the day. 40 percent chance of rain Saturday night, but mostly before midnight. So looking good for now. I’m sure they will change it 10 more times b4 then, lol. Anyway I think we’ll be good to go.

 Yes I saw the latest forecast and it has changed some. You know the old saying; "If you don't like the weather, just wait an hour".
The only weather condition that will keep me from being there is heavy rain. Hopefully that won't be the case.
