      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

tips on replaceing tires

Recommended Posts

just got my new tires and was wondering if you guys have any tip for putting them on the rims or should I just take it to a tire shop and let those guys do it. Trying to save a buck but if it means a big head ache its not worth it.

It could turn out to be more of a task than it's worth. I usually opt to take them to a tire shop and let them do it.

They have the equipment, can have it done in 15 minutes (if they work at it), and you're back in action without any pinched fingers or busted knuckles.

It's usually been around $20 for 4 tires. Worth the money IMO.

I still do them at home but not the hard way. I can/have done them plenty of times without "equipment" in probably less time than it takes to drive somewhere and wait. But, I have a tire machine at home to make it a bit easier. My advice if you haven't done them before is to avoid the frustration and have it done. Its too easy to cut a bead and ruin a new tire if you are not careful or don't have the right tools.

I would agree with Mac. I have a machine too and if you dont have one I would take them in. If you wreck a tire you have to buy a new one, if they wreck it they will buy it.

Getting the new ones on is a piece of cake. Getting the old ones off is another story.

I have a slide hammer designed to break beads on tractor tires and I have been unable to break the bead on ATV tires. The rims have a ridge placed just behind the bead that makes it a real challenge. I finally took mine in to the local service station and he even struggled to break the bead.
