ALLSTATE INSTALL...Dirty Nine gets a new pair of sneakers

Time to pop off the wheels and change the tires...

Easy as pie..

One off...

Serious cuppage!

Let's see how this goes...

So far so good...

No problem with removal...


The new ALLSTATE popped right on...

One done...

Off with the rear...
Not as easy as the front but not too bad...

I'd say this salami was ready for replacement...

Off with the old...

None too much trouble...

Look's good...

...And on with the new.


And there you have it...

I installed the new set off ALLSTATE's on the old "Dirty Nine"...she probably won't know how to act. 
Hell, I even adjusted the rear brake linkage so it stops now! Time to put these tires to the test. 
As you can see from the pics above, the old tires were shot. They served for her well for many decades but it was gettin' dicey in the rain and wintry mix type weather we've been havin'.
Well there's snow in the forecast...time to hit the road...

  1. Jeff, your ol dirty nine looks great even with them new tires.
    Would you have any link or other details to share for how to obtain such tires? If so PM me, I have googled trying to find any web site for those tires, not found any yet.

    Kind regards
    Sverre
