You just need the right technique (or so I'm told...)

If it still holds air, it's still good.

followed a car down the road one night that subscribed to that school of thought, the sparks off the steel belts were impressive

the tires on my 76 eldorado were 20 years old when I sold it, they were just starting to crack, had always been garaged and the tires had about 4000 miles on them in 20 years

I see that once again you have forgotten to pull your head out of your ass before posting, the tread is the part of the tire that interacts with the road, the tread PATTERN would be the grooves and such molded into the tread (or in the case of a slick, the LACK of grooves)

And you must also be blind since you called a nice looking piece of fish a hamburger, blindness would explain most of your posts so it must be so

Tell Warner to at least take the grinder, or a file to his knee pucks.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.
