Here are a few photos of our journey from Phoenix, AZ to Moab.
In true tire guy fashion we were ready to take off as a team and our shop truck pulling our loaded Discount Tire race trailer, had a flat front tire. After inspection we found the valve stem had a leak. Fortunately we have a tire machine in our shop and replaced it in record time. Now time for the 9 hour drive to one of the funnest places in the country!
Shortly after our lunch break; as we were nearing the entrance to Monument Valley, Eric noticed a trailer tire bouncing on the trailer in front of us. We puller over and sure enough the tire belts had broken. At least we caught it before it took out the fender! A quick change and we were back on the road.
The rest of the trip was uneventful thank goodness and we arrived in Beautiful Moab ready to work!
ALRIGHT!!! The Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks kicks OFF today!!!
We'll be starting the day with our Trail Restoration project with TreadLightly! on Kane Creek. The Discount Tire Trail Support Trailer will be out with us so if you're in the area and can stop by, come say hello, check out the trailer, and pick up some Rally Tokens!
Yesterday after getting our booth just right we had a little extra time so we decided to tackled Fins and Things to test out some of our new ATV/UTV tires and wheels.
This trail reminds me of a roller coaster as it undulates up and down the rock spires with beautiful majestic scenery at every corner.
We ended our day by prepping 75 lbs of pork for the annual industry party! Camp Chef supplied the smokers and all seasoning for the meat! Tomorrow will be such a blast!

We had 85+ people come to the annual industry party last night. Sponsors included Discount Tire, Rugged Radios and Camp Chef. This was by far the best turn out yet and we thank everyone for coming out!
It was nice to meet up with the friends we have met throughout the years along with making some new ones. As Danny Grimes (Grandpa's Garage) always says "every day you make new friends is a good day."
We played games, ate some unbelievable pulled pork thanks to Camp Chef (75 pounds!) and had an all around great time thanks to the support of all the vendors! Our hats off to everyone for coming; be safe at the event and make some new friends!
BTW if you don't have radios or are in the market for radios, be sure check in with Rugged Radios! Communication adds to the fun as you can rib your friends or help them if they need assistance.
To kick off day 2 of the 2017 Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks, we're serving up up a delicious breakfast for all the participants, because who wants to wheel on an empty stomach?! Thank you Rugged Radios and Camp Chef for co-sponsoring this with us!
We hope everyone has a great day of wheeling and don't forget to stop by the Spanish Trail Arena around 7:00 PM tonight for our Ice Cream Social!
If you're attending this years' Rally, seek out a Discount Tire employee for Rally Tokens! The Rugged Radios & Discount Tire ULTIMATE GIVEAWAY runs through May 29th and Rally Tokens increase the odds of winning!

So this happened during our afternoon ride today to LaSalle Mountains. Unfortunately the snow got too deep to make it safely to our destination, so we turned around. It was a good thing as we had to pull one machine out of a snow bank. Not exactly what we expected but we had a blast!
We ended day 2 of The Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks with our Ice Cream Social and Raffle night!!!
With freezers filled full of ice cream to help set the mood, it was time to give away thousands of dollars worth of prizes!!! The air was filled with excitement in anticipation for the raffle! There were tons of free shirts, hats, and other awesome goodies thrown out into the packed crowd.
We raffled off several sets of UTV tires and wheels, truck/passenger tires, trailer tires, along with Pelican coolers and cups, and Smitty built products to boot. About half way through our raffle Greg and Steve from Rugged Radios jumped up onto the stage and gave away some of their outstanding Rugged Radios which included a full package and intercom.
By the end of the night there was over $12,000 worth of goods handed out. I would say almost everyone in the crowd went away with something. It was a fitting ending to another fun filled day at the Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks!
Today is Vendor Day so if you're in attendance be sure to stop by the Discount Tire booth and check out some of the hottest UTV tires and wheels available for your side by side!
In Discount Tire fashion, we got up early before the start of vendor day and headed out to Moab Rim to have some fun! Moab Rim is a bit intimidating the first time you do it but is such a blast!
We had a full range of tires to test on the trail from the Tensor Desert Series to the Gladiator ATR. Each and every one of them did a great job! No flats and no issues making it up any of the obstacles. The new Rage One One and Rage Three Five Two also held tough and the bolt on scratch guards kept our wheels guarded from potential trail hazards.
Stay tuned for more wheeling pics! Tomorrow we're sponsoring runs on Poison Spider and Fins-N-Things!
Two days left at the Discount Tire Rally on the Rocks! Today we are running Fins and Things and look forward to wheeling with fellow enthusiasts! Stay tuned for pictures from this ride.
If you're in attendance and haven't met up with any of the Discount Tire crew, be sure you do so you can pick up Rally Tokens! The Rugged Radios and Discount Tire ULTIMATE GIVEAWAY isn't far off and the tokens increase the odds of winning.
