Nitto’s William Hong and Tyler Tanaka talk turkey about tires on this week’s show. They answer Adam and Matt’s questions about how to get the most out of your tires on the track or on the street. We also try to find out where to buy some proper “jack stamps” or something. Then we see their amazing custom 2014 Mustang GT, which will be given away at their car enthusiast day.

Bodie Stroud

While Adam is training for the Toyota Long Beach Celebrity Race, Sandy and Matt take your for tour of Bodie Stroud’s new Hot Rod Shop. Matt D’Andria jumps in as we look at Bodie’s projects which range from a 1956 Pickup to a new build he is just beginning that is based on a Boss 429 idea. Then Professor Ganz gets roped into more free labor instead or working on his projects, but at least he gets to explode a tire onto a rim backwoods style. And finally a peek at Mike Rowe’s first car. That’s this week on CarCast. Enjoy!
