@LaBalaDePlata that is interesting. When you say lease, how long are you leasing? And if that is the first well, how many more do you have to do? Yeah I can imagine being intrastate in Texas. It is big enough to run 3,000 miles or more a week without leaving the state.

Some days we don't move any. Today we moved 2 dozen sows and probably 200 of the little guys... and we were moving them from farrowing (where the little guys are born) moved the little guys to the grower (self explanatory) and the mothers into gestation (where they will be bred and start over) yesterday we moved hogs out of the grower and into the finisher. From the finisher they go to Tyson

the lease is the plot of land on which the wells are. each lease has a different name. most are named after the rancher who owns the land. others have really funky names. this lease is "coyote 48" and the one next door is "wild bill 2"- 650 acres. as far as times go i have no idea. i just own the blue semi in the pic. the oil and gas company had that pulling unit brought in to drill the frac plugs, and my truck provides 100 barrels of brine water per load to keep the well "dead"

Tires are all we do so it's kinda important that we at least follow some kind of guidelines. Just gotta take your time with vehicles like that and new guys aren't allowed to even look at that vehicle funny. I had another Maserati come in a few months ago and he needed a flat repair, turns out his rim was cracked. So I called the nearest dealer to get a price quote for him and it was $2600 for the one rim. My store averages $800k a month I think we can take the hit on that rim if we were to damage of course someone would be in trouble lol.
my local discount tire frequently does corvette zr1s and dodge vipers. they know what they are doing there.

Yep, I've had one of each come in my store since I've worked there 345mm wide tires on the back of that VIPER!

We mostly just do a crap load of trucks with 35"+ tires though...

Good money in that though too! lol

My friends little brother just decided to lift his chevy 1500 and he is getting 325/65R20 BFG KM2s at $555 a piece I was only able to take $100 off the total price, but something is better than nothing lol.

Yes sir! Not likely any store would keep that in stock but we can have it to you within the week if the manufacturer has it in stock. Michelin who also owns BFG can have me tires in the same day if not the next.

Check out Tires.com or DiscountTire.com to see some brands and prices, toyo isn't in our list of brands but we can still get them no problem, we also just started carrying Pro-Comp tires.

If you don't live in one of the 28 states that have Discount Tires you can order tires with free shipping from DiscountTireDirect.com
