New shoes for Inara

New Pirelli P4 tires installed at Discount Tire

The Michelin HydroEdge tires have survived the road for about 100,000 miles so it is time for a change. Since the HydroEdge tire is discontinued (replaced is probably more accurate), I decided to return to the P4s from Pirelli.

The price is better than the replacement Michelin and I don’t live on the road like I once did.

If you have followed this website for any time, you know I first ran the Pirelli P4s, then when I had to replace them, I had the Michelin HydroEdge tires installed. I wrote several reviews about each tire and I would recommend both tires.

Inara Mileage thi morning

Here is a picture of the odometer a few miles after the tire installation. Inara is about to turn 218,000 miles old, which she did a few hours after this shot was taken.

Inara has a big smile on her face. She likes her new shoes..

    I have a female Magnum(non-hemi). 2007 SXT 88,000 mi. Put the hydro-edge on it over a year ago upon your recommendation. Wondering when I should have the timing belt changed…….I had asked you over a year ago if you had ever changed yours……you hadn’t at that time.

      Well Jerry, I still haven’t changed the timing belt on Inara. That’s probably not my best move, but I justify it with the thought that highway mileage at 2000 RPM isn’t as hard on the motor (and therefore, the parts) as everyday driving. However, for the last year, I’ve commuted 80 miles round trip to work and back every day, with a lot of stop and go traffic in San Antonio. It’s something I need to reevaluate.
