What'S up guys welcome back, you challenged seventh, the first time folks gon na get down. There click Subscribe today it is December and for some reason it's 55 degrees out it's a beautiful beautiful day. So you know what that means. Your hands won't get cold. If they're in a washbucket, so what we're gon na do yes watch the truck, but it's gon na be a first wash with a foam cannon and a microfiber in eight a long time so bring it or washed up and get this video started. [, Music! ]! Look at that rib, [, Music ] see guys lost finding the root to the pile of bird crap. Up here I got ta get out. I was watching my truck and in the comments below I need a number to do a plumber man. It'S dripping, oh, my goodness. Look at that! That'S shine, it looks so good. The wheels are actually clean for the first time. Look at that ceramic coating doing its job Oh wheels are clean paint is actually no haze, full gloss clean. Look at that. It'S like a mirror, but green. My biggest thing is a hood because there's always a haze, the stuff that just lands on it. Oh that looks sharp. The grill looks awesome, as always, you guys are wondering yes, my still my same foam cannon from that video over a year and then uh two years ago, Jax wax ceramic shampoo, Meguiar's ultimate washing wax. I said the Jax wax ceramic detailer and down not that I need it today, but I got this McGuire's wheel cleaner as well and just a standard bucket and a thing, because my mom is still broken and I still need to pick a new one up and We got ta get that after wash pick here for Instagram, and this is how it goes down literally. This actually might be my Instagram pic screenshot of the picture of me. Taking the picture, that's hot, alright, guys we got the truck on the lift here. It'S about time we are rotating, we're rotating the tires on this guy today. Keep them rolling smooth, keep them up now. Keep the life in these guys as much as they can because they are not they're, not cheap, I'm definitely not cheap and, while we're at it we're gon na flip. These tires on the wheel themselves. Cuz, you see how it says Toyo MT here, and it's give a shot here. If this side is raised and this side isn't so we're gon na put the raised side out. This looks like a gigantic paint chip ready to happen, so we're gon na remove you, sir and chips camera lens. Instead, that's fine because it looks more aggressive that way and I didn't really pay attention to it when I mounted these over the summer, so we're flip them today. So it looks more aggressive and it just looks it looks better and we're gon na rotate them. So obviously, keep keep the wear even keep. Keep everything just keep everything in line. So this is how the rotations are gon na. Go this tire back here that tire back here and then these two are going up. A lot of people rotate tires different ways. That'S the way I'm gon na rotate it whether we you learn that you're gon na achieve everything is different, but that's way, rotating thoughts are gon na cross them back to the front [ Music, ], [ Applause, ], [, Music, ], [, Music, ]. Pretty much here. We'Re just taking these about stems the cores out, so we can deflate the tire, so we can dismount it, but it's just done with one of these tools: Universal come in here and twist. The core out drop the cap, but I want to show you the core, because it that is the valve in your valve, stem that allows their in and out for that matter. But you just remove that and all the air comes right out: [, Music, ], [, Music, ], and just like that it is flipped. The flat side is on the backside of the wheel, and the raised side is on the face side of that one just called filling up our air and then, after this after we flip the tires opposite because you're flipping the tire on the wheel there. You need to rebalance them if you guys want to know a little secret here. The reason why there's already one tire on the truck is because, when I mounted them six months ago, I actually left uh-huh. I actually left this one, which is my drivers, one. It had it had the raised sidewall out the whole time and nobody ever noticed it. Nobody ever noticed that except me, but the the other three tires themselves were. I did not have the raised lettering out, so I'm finally getting around to flip it and that's what we're doing today, while I'm rotating the tires in in the process but yeah the secret is one of my tires was raised letters out the other one, we're not The whole times as they own this truck and I put the lift on so uh, I'm glad now you caught that and now you guys are all gon na go and look for it in some of my videos, you're like oh you yeah yeah, I'm actually glad It hit the whole time. That'S pretty that's pretty awesome. It just looks so much better with the the the the raised lettering out. Some people won't even know that the raised lettering it even has an option but yeah look at that raised lettering prepared to yes, I'm gon na have one like that anymore. Cuz they're, all flipped out, but just like this Ridge grip or two, it has two options. Some people won't even notice they're on their truck that the tires could have two options, but you see this side that side wall compared to this sidewall. You could just see that this block here it's a little slanted angle in this block here, is just flat, so it just got two options. Two options, sidewall just like this. These tires are not directional and they're, not asymmetrical, they're, symmetrical tires. They just have to patience for a sidewall, so that's what we're dealing with here, we're just putting all the raised lettering out. So not only me, but my buddy who's buying the wheels and tires will have a set. That'S sitting right so that and we're gon na rebalance three of them because the other one is, we didn't touch it. We can take it off the wheel, so we should be good. I mean we could rebalance it, but the tariffs roll smooth as they are so we're fine. Some people rotate and balance every time, but I'm just gon na I'm just rotating the day. I wouldn't balance something if I didn't want to flip the sidewalls out. So a common thing I see when people get tires rebalanced, is they don't scrape the old weights off start fresh grape, all your weights off start, fresh and and the weight says the machine wants at that time. As you drive your tires, I mean you change the tires change the tread depth change, how they're shaped changes, so you want to start fresh every time and if you don't get your tire balance and you see the weights just add it on to where the factories Were walk were right back in the front door and say: hey you guys, didn't scrape the weights off, don't don't tell them, don't let them tell you anything else. Just tell them. You want them rebalanced, fresh, fresh weights, so just to do that. You'Re gon na bring your thing select exactly where you want the weight. That'S gon na put us in a static balance. Do you never want to spoke balance as well? Have you come back and you see your wheels balanced with weights behind the spoke? That'S just the Machine messing that well if it needs three ounces here, I'll put one five here and one five here and it might work which isn't a true balance. You don't want that, even though it looks better, you do not want that. The reason why I like Toyo's, look at how smooth they roll some of the cheaper tires. You'Ll see they'll, be on the balancer wobbling, and you don't want that. Another thing I see forgotten often and when people get their stuff mailed to them and there's weights at the bottom of their pallet, I can tell you right now: they use no adhesion promoter. Then these sticky weights aren't they're strong, but they're, not that strong, especially if you mount them to dirt or a non clean surface. Even brand new wheels adhesion promoter right where the laser is look at all that dirt that came off. This is not gon na harm. Your wheel, just don't, dump pounds of this stuff on your wheel. You don't want that. How you know it's a good wheel and tire is when it takes one spin of the balancer to balance you'll have if your machine isn't calibrated or you have a wheel or tire that's kind of out of round it's gon na do something. That'S gon na start chasing weights, not saying like I've, had good wheels and good tires that do chase weights. That means one of them is kind of a it still will probably roll just fine, but some of the more premium tires and the premium wheels. You should get a one spin balance and it'll be fine, not gon na waste. Your time doing the other two and then we'll get these on the truck, get the wheels torqued down and we'll get around here. You know the lugs real, quick on on the wheels. I'M gon na put these center caps back on. These are simple: snap-ins [, Music ]. Now this is something everybody considers buying, however, does not [ Music ]. You see that, like I said guys, look at that three or four those lug nuts were not technically to spec, not saying the other ones won't hold the wheel on, but you always want. Obviously you want all the lug nuts tightened as they should so torque wrenches. You need one: yes, it sucks up front to buy in the hundred dollar tool or one hundred three hundred dollar whatever you're buying, but it is necessary all right in there. We have it wheels and tires back on torqued, rotated and great sidewalls are out. Well, it's quite the project, but I'm just happy it's done and taken care of that's awesome. Most people are gon na ask. Well how often do you rotate tires? Mud tires on a truck that is just driven on the street. The answer is five thousand miles. I'M just about to hit 5,000 miles on this wheel and tire set up, and I decided to take care of it today, because I had the time and over the next few weeks, headed into the new year, I'm gon na be driving a lot. So I decided to take care of that now. A lot of people say: oh, I rotate my tires with my own. My oil changes. That'S great. If you have the old, like an older car, those those trucks, those you know, those are 5,000 mile intervals for oil changes. This truck has a 15,000 mile oil change interval that's three times as much as a 5,000 mile tire rotation, whether you have a car truck SUV, whatever you want to stick to the 5,000 mile tire rotation, whether it's an oil change or not. I'Ll, probably change the oil on this thing, and it's almost at ten thousand miles, so I'm probably change it at ten, especially with tires this expensive. You don't want them to wear down uneven. You want them to wear funny tone the ride funny you don't want them to wear down quicker than they need to. What will happen is if you keep continuously turning these up front, what you're now in the back, but if you continuously turn these and those stay straight, these will wear down a lot. Just keep him rotated 5,000 miles. If I didn't have to flip the sidewalls, this would have been less than a half hour job. It would have been maybe 10 minutes, especially with if you have a lift, if not two jacks, some jack stands, it's simple and you can get it down real, quick and it's easy and you're saving your butt yourself, a bunch of money, you're extending the life of Your tires and um, you know we all know that these tires are hardly ever gon na see, off-road or full mud pits, so they're not exactly designed for Road use, but because we use them on the road. Hey precautions to keep them in good condition. As you can see, these things still have almost full meat on them, since I bought them and we've done five thousand miles on them. So that's a quick wear update on on these twenties, but yeah 5,000 miles. First tire rotation and they're still pretty much brand new. Come on guy, you drive a Ridgeline. Let me through I'm, trying to turn any in a real truck. Let'S go. I got away to the green light to move. This is my ridgeline, I'm so big all right! Good! Now we're gon na make some or make some step. However, if you go to Home Depot, sell like the step jig already made, and that's like 12 bucks for that or you can buy this huge. I believe this is a 10 foot and 12 inch wide board for about 11 bucks, they're saving, a dollar and getting so much more wood. But if you go over to the jig section and put it on here, you can trace it and there it is so now you have steps. All you have to do is cut it out and then repeat the process, two sides, and then your other board is to complete the steps for a lot less money. So I'll pretty much use what's already there and then get a piece of wood. And now you can make the steps and saves the money [ Music ]. I have a matching yeah we're gon na, throw that there underneath, I think, it's fun: [, Music, ], [, Music, ], okay. So, with a little more geometry, we added other extra pieces and made this awesome triangle. Look at thing and a little extra here don't worry about that. But now we have a flat edge on the bottom and we're over don't worry about the wobbly Ness. Now we can at least use three steps. Okay put, those are there and Wow is that nice? You can see yeah, that's right coming here soon, so tell me how you, like it: [ Music, ], [, Music, ], that's right: [, Music, ], [, Music, ],
