: Found 303 from a Michelin Rep's recommendation after he said they won't warranty any of their tires that have been treated with ArmorAll.

I avoid tire treatments like the plague simply because they are dust magnets. Since I park in a dirt parking lot, it makes them look worse than nothing at all.

: Blaine, how old are the commercial tires that go 500,000-1,000,000 miles? Know they get re-treaded several times.

Depends. I put 300K+ miles on my drive tires in the course of 3 years. In those three years, the tires can sometimes start dry-rot cracking, but it does not go very deep.

The last set of (8) drive tires I turned in for recapping, only 4 passed recap inspection. They're pretty tough on 'em, and only PERFECT casings get recapped. The rest of 'em get shredded.

: Still noodling a rear disc conversion, but none of the kits I've looked at recently are what I want. Think I can design and make a better setup and put a parking/E brake on the drive shaft at the transfer case.

Dana 60 or Sterling 10.5"? Why not do the whole axle?
