      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 .

Tires for F150 with 18" wheels

Recommended Posts

Time to get a first set of new tires for my baby, my '05 F150 FX4 with 18" wheels. The tires I was planning on getting don't come in right size.

Any suggestions? I'm looking at the Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo or the Goodyear Silent Armor.

So far i have been impressed with the BG Goodrich rugged trail T/A's on the Tundra.

agreed. ive had good luck with mine also. i got a buddy that runs them on all the trucks hes had and he claims it get alot of miles outa em(he also drives pretty hard). i got 20,000 on mine and they got all kinds of tread left. but i take it pretty easy since they dont exactly give em away wink

Quetico -- I have an 04 Supercrew and put the Revo's on it 2 1/2 years ago. No complaints here -- great ride, smooth and quiet. I have 48k on them and I'll be replacing them this fall. I'm guessing I'll have 55 - 60k on them by then.

Not knocking any of the suggestions here...but also Consumer Reports rates the Revo's very well.

Good tire.

I wouldn't waste my money on a set of Revo's the tread loads up with rocks. They came on my 08 GMC (18" wheels) and I had them taken off, they were horrible. Always full of stones, even after a couple hundreds miles of tar. I had an 05 F150 FX4, when it came time for tires (70k)I went on the favorite auction site and bought a brand new take off set, 18" FX4 wheels and bf goodrich rugged trail tires for $650. Sold the old wheels and tires for $250. The factory tires were also rugged trails, they were decent. Money no object I'd go with the BFG all terrains, thats what went on my new truck.

    • I like my Vex 28, super quiet and bright. I will say my 18 was foolproof and easier to use to do the same thing. They are expensive though. 
    • "Mr. Fastidous"...ha! That from a guy who takes hours to cook a steak with a precise digital heating gadget...  I just don't care to strain sh** particles thru my teeth that are in the melted ice water from the imported frozen shrimp, giving ya a good case of gangbangarrhea of the lower blowhole.

OK so here are some of the finer details, its my wifes machine. 4116 miles and most are trail miles.its a 1995 touring E, electric start. it will come with that dolley, a jug of injection oil, cover and extra belt. i put a new battery in it 2 years ago put hasnt been used in at least 3 years. the only shop maintence thats been done to it is the carbs have been cleaned. it will also need to be relicensed. after both her  knees and both her hips being replaced she has no desire to ride again!
