Talk to me about tires

This toad was found in our yard and has nothing to do with this post other than the compulsion to include visual content. The population is slowly rebounding post-drought, which is good to eliminate creepy crawlies. They get much bigger.

I am considering upgrading the tires on the Sunchaser. With the new cooling overhaul and suspension bushings, I am taking longer trips and driving it more. My wife’s newfound rally passion is also a consideration.

Right now, it has some cheap but decent Hankooks on it that have been there for about 2 years. There is no urgency to replace them, but I wonder if I would get a better and/or safer ride with a higher end tire.

I am thinking about this to avoid what I have to do today.

I get to write a brief to the Court of Appeal about whether an underground auger used as a waste conveyor meets the definition of a power press under California Labor Code Section 4558. SPOILER ALERT: It does not. The Plaintiff’s expert testified as follows:

Me: What was the device that caused the worker’s death?

Him: The east-west auger.

Me: Is the east-west auger a power press?

Him: No.

Me: What is the basis of your opinion that a power press may be involved?

Him: I saw a power panel at the plant that had 20 switches, and one was labeled “Press.”

Me: Did you see anything that looked like a press anywhere in view of the accident site?

Him: No.

We won, and they appealed. So I have to read all this crap and write an argument to convince the court that this case should go away. The lawyer for the other side is batshit crazy, and I hate this case.

Any ideas or tire recommendations?
