    Any chance it’s a Goodyear?

    He never mentioned whether or not the balance was checked or if he even has balance rings.

    I had that problem with an out of round tire, it was a Kelly. Never will buy one again. It’s hard to believe that a Firestone 591 having that issue. Those were gonna be my go to tire on my next set.

    Tire guy is who finally jacked it up for me to spin it and find the out of round. The guy I bought it from put Zenna tires on the rear axle. All the others are "okay" but that one really. RRO is bad out of round. I think it could have been mismounted or something but not sure. Either way still got lots of meat left on it and nothing I can do but replace it. Guy I bought the truck from come to find out wasn't so good at keeping up with stuff.

    Haha. I agree. Even at 110psi my steers that are Goodyear look awful squatty like they're low on air.

    Dry pancakes with no syrup for stickieness.

    Someone made pancakes and forgot to buy syrup…….once. After throwing them (the pancakes) out the window, it never happened again.
