Ta Tonka's new shoes

When i got my rig it had 175/70R15 snow tyres all round, and it has come time for their replacement.

After much searching around, I finally found some tyres in that size, with a decently aggressive tread, and they are en route all the way from DemonTweeks in the UK. In the mean time, a 165SR15 showed up on Ebay at the right price, so I snagged that.

It arrived last night, brand new, perfect condition Yokohama snow tyre.

Not sure what combination I will do, whether to put this on the front and have a spare rear, or to stud this up and chuck it on the rear for the winter, we'll see when the other three tyres arrive, and see if they will all fit.

Stoked to have some traction in the slippery stuff again!
