so children... how many of you are in for the picnic? we get to see birds (read as crows) and animals (read as cows, dogs and if really lucky a couple of donkeys.. ooops i mean horses). Then we can go watch fast cars go vroom vroom where the red car would win again (I wish I could say that ) ok the white car would win and the uncle in the silver car gets punished by the PT master for lying. And finally everybody goes home with a nice photo.

Hi friends,

pl count me in this time. I missed a lot of the meets and this time I would love to catch up.

And Nitrous, I can give you company with whatever you have if it finally boils down to GP meet.

OT: You know that money is not the constraint there. The moment I wear out the current set of tyres, the BlackBeauty will sport wider shoes. But even at 30K kms, the damn stock tyres look like new. Looks like I'll have to wait ages to upgrade tyres.

Points to ponder

1. Life of the hard rubber in your tyres is not more than 3-4 years.
2. Tyres may look good, but are they really good. Tread alone does not mean life, except maybe for auto/taxi wallahs.
3. The earlier you change to better tyres, more time you will have to enjoy them.

Biju, Use your car more often and you'll realise what your tyres really are.

Adding to the above, Check the thread depth to see whether you have atleast 5mm. Then maybe your tyres have hardly worn out!!
