Listen: Hyundai, Pontius, Rubicon Trail discussed on The Smoking Tire
"I'm telling you this is forever ago. Asymmetrical, nah, no debt Assads weird. I hate everybody. I believe you, alas, somebody believe me. Oh, man. Shit. So the Volvo. It was. It's nice. It's really nice inside. I don't. I don't think we're going to look at that design in ten years and be like, instill like it. To be honest. I think it's really cool now. I don't think it's gonna. I don't think it's gonna have staying power, not timeless, no. But with you on that, then kissing a retriever just talking about pretty fun. Good value. I think. Yes, everybody has come through here talking about key six months. I every better. No, no, I don't. I don't care the only person who hasn't driven it. I'm back finally back on, you know, Hyundai and Kia have the that the lawyers, oh, you have to have a clean license. Oh boy. So I have a clean license for the first time in like fifteen years. And I've, I have the va lost her. Our spec of end spec. The end is like probably later if you have that book that's probably like a few months away. Oh, no, I have one of the new any are. The their version of like an SI versus it'd be like a type bar, have you driven it? No, I have not. I one of my colleagues job liked it. Okay, fine. I'm, that's my first Hyundai in since twenty team hunky is they're, they're superlight clean and easy, and just idiot proof is the word I'd like to use. But yeah, I've been on a couple of tire launches recently really, which are range in level of boondoggle leanness. We like PF. Jesus launched the KM three mud terrain tire. They spent a freak in fortune to have a strive for ninety minutes on the this curated section of the Rubicon trail. What's it? It's a Jeep tire. Yeah, it's hard to hardcore muttering tire. And yes, you know, we're in Rubicon frontier lockers. Like it's pretty fun a million spotters and it's like, oh, well, we got through it and didn't pop any tires. But like obviously that happened so I don't know. It's hard to write about. It's like, what do I say like, yeah, the Rubicon school rice started with the Rubicon. That's why trust that shit all up. That's why get Michelin. They were like, here's all these chef's has has the tire is a one percent improvement, which is amazing. Yeah. Meanwhile may personal experience. That's a great we. I have a set of cop, two's on my daily. My Acura which is like a high-performance summer tire. Saltire and two years to the day. I had an sixteen thousand miles normally use. They separated on the side sidewalls like cracking at probably actually probably shouldn't be saying this. 'cause I'm going through the warranty process because I haven't liked hit up their PR people yet. I'm like, wanna see, hit up there. You're a customer bought them yet. Wanna see, see how the warranty takes care. But the tire tech, I got installed a joint called west coast hiring services. They're nice to me there on Pontius. Yeah. Oh, I love west coast. They've they handle the Lexus right on. Yeah, it's fucking use those guys. It's pretty close to me dear. Super, yeah. Yeah. Would do all the when we had Gotham dream cars. They would do all the exotics to right on. Well, I guess they're getting a free plug. So yeah, they deserve it. They work hard over. They Don west coast. Yes. But yeah, they were shocked. They're like they're like sixteen thousand miles like, yeah, like, yeah, we've never seen a BF normal. So yeah, I don't know normal. So the warranties pro-rata so many get some of my hundred seventy dollars back. So expensive tire. What size? Seventeen. I forget what the. Yeah, so that's a bummer. Sorry. No, it is a bummer. But anyway, back to tire launches Assan.."
