throw them on the car and drive...but before you do,you better check and make sure all four of your shock springs are equal length,pressure,and rebound.......and throw those shocks on a losi shock tool after hand filling and bleeding,cause I guarantee you,the tires are the least of your worries...
LOL , yeah thats for sure. I just use the tire shore gauge to just give me an idea what kinda tire set im placing on my car. Granted If I put those jacos on my car. I would have gone out and probably handled pretty badly.

The other good thing is unnamed and unboxed tires can now be used again. But yeah I make sure my cars are pretty fresh. I dont replace my shock oil much though. Perhaps will start doing that more often. I use a digital caliper on the shocks normally and on all the linkages / pillow balls to make sure the car is pretty equal all around.
