The Teal Terror gets a matching spare

Until last week, I had an old, bald-ass 205/75/15 spare tire on the original Suzuki 15x5 spare wheel. In addition to being bald and undersized (I now run 235/75/75 BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires), it also didn't match my other wheels. So I bit the bullet and bought a matching spare wheel from Summit Racing: A 15x7 U.S. Wheel Series 37 in all of its bling-blingness. I always figured once I got my wheel, I'd just buy a used 235/75/15 tire so it matched in size and so it had enough tread in case I actually needed to use it. However, I ended up with something much better.

Browsing Portland's craigslist ads, I found a brand-new 235/75/15 Goodyear Silent Armor tire—a very nice rubber doughnut, indeed. Not only that, but I picked it up for $55! Plus the dude was totally cool.

So the Teal Terror continues to evolve, and continues to prove you don't need to spend big bucks to have big fun.
