Hello Everyone, I am new to this forum and new to the Valk's (had one for 6 months). I am just finishing up installing a new u-joint and decided that while I had the tire off I would go ahead and switch over to the darkside. I bought the Goodyear Assurance triple tread in a 205x60x16. I have not tried it yet (today or tomorrow) but will post what I think. I really got a lot of laughs and strange looks when I got the tire put on and balanced. Everybody thought I was nuts. I sure hope you guy's are right.
I was really surprised at the amount of damage to the u-joint after only 15500 miles. I got it just before it went. very lucky. I did not see any more damage, splines all looked good, and bearings nice and tight. I can only assume the u-joint was defective or incorrectly installed? Anyone else have early u-joint failure?
