while ive never done a head job myself, its my understanding that you must drop the motor to do it properly, the only thing you can get to is the valve cover gaskets with the motor in  :(

i took a 110 mile white mountain excursion last weekend and was very impressed with the cornering grip, no sway, i didnt have proper tires before and my bus blew around like a flag, if people passed me my bus would sway :lol: no probs now, ive never had the Hankook brand but am happy w/ these yokos. are the hankooks more of harder compound tire?
