Re: Traded in the 4Runner...

Welcome & congrats on your self-imposed B-Day present.!!!!

Don't feel to bad about having your spare stolen - the loser must've been REALLY desperate to take the stock street tire - he obviously needed it more than you.

And the big PLUS is, now you only have to sell 4 "bling" rims and 4 sh!tty tires when you get real wheels & tires.

...............just trying to put a positive spin on it for ya!

...it was strange for someone to take one rim and tire; I'm not ready financially for the new rims and tires yet but I did think about that for a minute.

Positive spin appreciated...

Re: Traded in the 4Runner...

Howdy!

My dad bought a brand new '59 VW while I was a wee one. We were at relatives for Christmas, it was raining like crazy when it was time to go. No one in sight anywhere and good neighborhood. Dad took me out to the car to warm it up. He fired it up and let it idle and he popped the front trunk, then thru some food leftovers in there and put the trunk down without locking it. We ran back in the rain to get the presents to take home, and back out the car a few moments later, and the friken spare tire is gone from the trunk--food left behind. Blew me away even as a pre-schooler. Dad and I owned lots of VWs in following years, and it became a custom of ours to buy a short piece of chain, bolt it to the gas tank flange, and run it thru the tire with a padlock.

Tire jerks everywhere, and throughout time.....

Wow Yosef. Incredible that he didn't take the car...

"Tire Jerk" is a great name...that is officially how I will refer to the tire jerk that left me with a bare back door (still looking foe deals on a rim and tire). Amazingly enough I found someone selling ONE RIM in Hialeah, FL...I can't help but wonder if that's the tire jerk...probably not!
