  1. You must live a very sheltered life if you're disturbed by someone changing a shirt.

    So I went to Malvern to do some OT today and had to drive an artic. Regular tires on it. How many did they equip with those Michelins?

    You really need to chill. NovaBus76 is just going through the hiring process. It's not like he's starting training before your friend is.

    Maybe it's time one of the tire manufacturers made a transit tire with a more aggressive tread pattern. I don't know if it's just me but to me it seems Nova wheels are set a little further inside the wheel well then Orion. I found it easier to rub tires driving an Orion versus Nova.

    That's pretty interesting. I wonder if the rubber compound is softer on Goodyear tires or maybe just thinner sidewall so it can take less abuse.

    They all rub. It's all depends on the operator. Everyone rubs once in a while but for some it's a much more happening occurence. I ment if there was a transit tire with tread pattern like this that it would be run year round. Since this isn't a transit tire for sure they're coming off as soon as possible to minimize sidewall damage. So all of attics at Malvern have these tires now? What about other divisions attics?

    They would just run them all year so no storage or tire swapping needed.

    Rubbing the side of the tire against the curb doesn't change how the bus rides but it does weaken the tire sidewall. Transit tires are reinforced on the sidewalk just for this reason. This is a truck Tire that does not have reinforced sidewall and is probably just for testing purposes to see if attics do better with this tread in the snow. I would be happy with a tire like this year round. It should do well in heavy rain too.

    That's why the ride along assignment is beneficial. People get a bit of an idea what it's like to work as an operator. Especially the night portion since a lot of noobs have to do night work.

    It's a total lifestyle change for a lot of people. Your days off will be during the week for a while so forget about doing a lot of stuff with your friends on the weekend ds. You'll be working all different hours too.

    I agree that's why I said something about it. Now get your stuff done and start training so my seniority goes up a little more 😁
