Spare tire reborn

Myrtle came with 6 wheels and tires in need of replacement. We had previously purchased seven 17.5 inch Yokohama Y785R tires. For other tire options check out Buttercup's blog: 

We searched for a spare rim, and were lucky enough to buy one from Buttercup's owner. We've just had it sandblasted, powder coated and the tire mounted. Here are the before and after photos below. The next step is getting a sweet custom cover made.

Two of the biggest expenses for any commercial truck driver or fleet manager are diesel fuel and tires. Of course, it is easy to choose the right fuel at a gas station but it isn’t so easy choosing the right tires. You have to consider the size, tread, position and durability of the tires in conjunction with the environment you’ll be driving them in. That way you can get the most life out of your tires and reduce the chances of them going flat or blowing out on the road. When you visit a truck tire retailer, they’ll be able to recommend the best tires for your truck under the conditions you’ll be driving them under.Truck tires
