Beachbum's N

Replaced rear car tire @ 80,985. New tire is General G Max 195/55-16, old tire was Kumho 195/60-16, worn in the center which means over inflation, but I never ran more than 40 lbs in the tire. No more Kumho, just over 18,000 miles.

You're tough on front pads, huh?

I think it's time for me to get new ones. I think I've got about 20K on them.
LOL, back in June I tried a set of cheapo pads on the front and they did not last at all. I went back to oem pads before my trip to Texas in April.
