I had to fill up the fuel tank - 42 gallons of diesel.

Oil change and filter.


Reset the service reminder.


Didn't grease up the interior this time.

I'm at Discount Tire right now, having my new tires (2 weeks old) replaced with a different set. The set being removed (Cooper Discoverer HTP's) have given me nothing but problems towing- they just don't track true down the road. I'm going back to the stock tires- Goodyear SR-A "P" rated tires. Never had a problem with the last two sets I had.

Discount Tire is making it an even swap, even though the Goodyears cost a little more. Plus, they are installing the new TPMS sensor I bought on Amazon, no charge.

Go to Discount Tire. It's a great business.

I just drove my truck home with the new Goodyear SR-A tires. Even not pulling the trailer, it tracks beautifully down the road. I can position the steering wheel, let go of it, and it will keep it's course flawlessly. New TPMS sensors I bought on Amazon for $30 bucks work flawlessly, too. It's been a great day!

Not only that, but on the way back, I stopped at a farmstand and bought a big ol' Crimson Sweet seeded watermelon. I ate 1/3 of the sucker for lunch, and it was good!

I learned that my new Goodyear tires had a rebate offer connected when purchasing 4 tires. I just filled out the online rebate application, and was approved for a $70 rebate. That makes the new tires cost only $143.50 each. Sweet!

What did you do to your Tow Vehicle today?

Why did you go with "P" rated tires rather than LT tires? Not a smart ... question, but it seems to me that most folks on here swear by LT tires over "P" rated tires.

Had a K&N cold air intake kit installed. Had the original 100,000 mile plugs and wires swapped out. (Truck has 120,000 on the clock). Mechanic also installed new drivers side exhaust manifold... Some loose studs.

P rated tires were OEM equipped on the truck from the factory, and they worked really well with the truck. My second set was identical to the factory tires. I also thought going to LT tires would be a smart move, but it just wasn't so.

I towed my TT a couple hundred miles today, and the replacement OEM Goodyears did a great job. Towing was a pleasure, and not a white knuckled stressful situation that I got with the LT tires.

The tech at Discount Tire thought that maybe the LT tires were defective, out of round maybe. All I know is that my truck tows well with the OEM tires, and they can handle the load, so I'll never mod/upgrade its tires again.

Installed a Joying Android radio in the dash a couple weeks ago. It is awesome.

Did the same thing to my truck a little while back. Love the built in torque app!
