    Ill tell you like dad would explain it to me growing up.

    “man goes out buys nice new shiney bow, INSTEAD of tires for truck. Man gets shiney bow loaded into truck to go hunt. Tire blows out truck crashes, mans shiney new bow is a two peice bow now and insurance only covered just enough for a used truck with bad tires…true story”

    How the heck does anyone get 100K out of a set of tires… :shock:

    No kidding. I was extremely happy with getting 65k out of my stock tires. I might could have pushed it and made 70k.

    I could make up some internet hype like these were “filled with nitrogen”
    But the fact is I didn’t even rotate them.
    They just lasted a long time

    Not even rotated nonetheless…. :shock:

    I will honestly say, that will probably never happen again! But they need replacing, IMO. [=}=]

    Yeah I’m going to do ‘em.
    Too many hunting trips planned this Fall and Winter to mess around!

    Heck, if you had rotated them a couple times, you could have probably gotten 150k out of those. They’ve got pretty good tread on the inside. :shock:

    The fact is, they were! At least 77%, just like all the rest of us who fill our tires with “air”. Seriously though, those tires look to be in really decent shape. I’ve gotten through winter with tires less “manly” than those! Get the bow! Rotate the tires too!

    It's not how far you shoot, but how close you get.

    Way due for replacing, look to be almost or right at the wear bar and they have some dry rot [=}=]

    I’d sell them back to Goodyear and get a new set and a bow. That’s obviously a freaky set of tires. [=}=]
