    Interesting. That email must be new in the last few months. Thank you for the heads up.

    Well, I realized the other day I had over 120k on the Doublecoin tires I bought from Loves last year, so here's what they look like now.

    They are kept at 100 psi. Far as I know, none of them has ever been under load at less than 90 psi. Had a loose passthrough valve stem cap on one once.

    I am currently under a two-drop Walmart load, and am being told something mighty strange.

    Has anyone heard of Walmart DCs doing FCFS deliveries of partial loads?

    I have never seen any Walmart DC take a load without a clear delivery time.
     
    Rideandrepair Thanks this.

    I’ve only seen appointments only. I have had some let me in early, but those were ones I was a regular.

    3 of them look like they were under for a bit.

    The bottom pic looks the worst.
    front inside tire. The middle sticks out higher.

    Wear looks really good otherwise.
