TBT: 5 Movie Cars We Want


Let’s get right to it here, shall we? 

  • The DeLorean from “Back to the Future” – The DeLorean was as much a product of the 80s as anything you can think of. With its brushed-stainless skin, angular body lines, gullwing doors and complicated backstory involving the flamboyant John Z. DeLorean himself, the car wasn’t an especially strong performer…but it sure does sum up a point in time nicely.
  • The green Dodge Charger from “Bullitt” – Yes, everyone loves Steve McQueen’s Mustang from the movie…but we kinda prefer the 440-powered Dodge Charger that met a spectacular end. Something about the Charger is more menacing and brutal than the Mustang. May ...[more]

Are You Ready for the Fourth of July?




Its that time of year; fireworks and spending time in the great outdoors. It’s a great time to be an American enjoying all the holiday has to offer. As you prepare to head out to enjoy your favorite holiday traditions, make sure you check all your tires before you leave to ensure a worry free weekend.

RV Tires

If you have not taken your RV out in a while, you will defiantly need to check the age and condition of your tires. Hot and cold weather will compromise the sidewalls of your tires rendering them unsafe for driving condition. Check for cracks and hardening of the rubber compound in the sidewalls and tread. RV tires need to be replaced every few years regardless of road wear. If you need to replace your RV tires here’s our top recommendation:

Off Road: ATV Tires


Feeling like throwing some mud?

ATV tires have to be able to hold up to tough punishment, and also don’t have to reach highway speeds. That means they need heavy-duty casings and tread formulations, low tire pressures, aggressive tread and a level of traction and control that you’ll never see with street tires. ATV tires also usually are made from a softer rubber compound for extra traction (but also have to be rigid enough to handle well at higher speeds). ATV tires, in other words, have to be able to hold up under some really extreme conditions, and get you all the way through to the other side of where you’re heading. Have a look at our recommendations for some great ATV tires:

Performance: Aston Martin cc100


Aston Martin cc100

Since the 50s, Britain’s Aston Martin has been synonymous with performance, design and esoteric British classiness. Today’s Aston Martin, however, is known more for brute force, and the CC 100 Speedster is expected to stay in keeping with that image. Amazingly, the CC100 went from concept and drafting table to production in under six months time. While it’s currently a one-off concept car, the CC100, like many concept cars, hints at new design directions and ideas for the car maker.

Created to reflect the company’s 100th anniversary, the CC100 is powered by a 555 horsepower 6-liter V12 engine, with a top speed of over 180 mph and a zero-to-60 time of under four seconds. The naturally-aspirated V12 is then mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with racing ...[more]

Five Beautiful Off-Road Destinations


Beautiful Utah

Time to get out of your office cubicle, off the couch or out from in front of the TV set and go take in the great outdoors! Experience the sights and sounds, breathe some air you haven’t breathed before, and imagine how it all looked to native Americans, cowboys or even Lewis and Clark a couple of hundred years ago.

Moab and Paiute ATV Trail, Utah

Sand, water, cliffs, bluffs, boulders…Moab has a little bit of everything. Miles and miles of this area were charted decades ago by prospectors, and it’s as remote, rough and demanding as any trek you’re likely to take. Be ready, though, with plenty of provisions for yourself and your machine both. The payoff is some of the most dramatic, spectacular Wild West scenery you’re going to experience.

Calico Ghost Town, Californi ...[more]
