They were Goodride... 17.5's.... I believe they took over the Westlake Tire market??

Assuming you are storing outside with no cover?
How did the previous Redwood full paint take that?

It took it very well.... 5 years of sitting out and it still looked better than the day I got it...

BUT - I do wax it a lot.... I try for a coat of spray wax each spring, then a full coat of hand wax/buff at some point over the summer.

I sometimes try for a coat of spray wax in the fall as well, but that doesn't happen as much as I would like.

Here is a pic I took before I cleaned it up for the Richmond Race this April.... 2 weeks before it's demise . .

We had the MorRyde IS, discs and bearings installed on ours a year and a half ago. We already had 17.5 wheels. What a great upgrade it has been over the springed axles. We put over 50k miles on the original Dexter axles and they were giving us some issues. Combined with our Trailer Saver BD3 air hitch we get a great ride.

Thanks, Our plan was to keep the older ( 16 ) model, but that didn't work out as planned, let's hope for better luck with this one..
