Uh oH3

Just a friendly reminder, use the correct tires for trails.

Saw this H3 in Lajitas Texas when I went down to check some stuff out for an event in October.

Talked to the people a few minutes, seemed really nice, we saw them later on at the entrance to Santa Elana Canyon on the Texas-Mexico border.

Those stock Goodyears are really terrible. Just to prove that Hummer knew it too, the '09 base models now come with Goodyear all terrain tires as opposed to the old highway terrain. They look much nicer as well.

No joke there.

Too bad Land Rover doesn't do that. I guess Land Rover looks at this way:

- Most people in Land Rovers buy them for the name, and if they want to off road it, they will put bigger tires on the wheels, or find smaller and/or aftermarket wheels to put off road tires on them.

That's why you see my Freelander with 1991 Ford Explorer 15" wheels.

I destroyed two of the stock goodyears. The sidwalls are very fragile.
