Suck it up and go

I'm gonna side with '62.
Stick a jack under a spindle and lift the tire off the ground, shake and spin it. Go to the next one. If they all feel ok hook up the safety chains and go. Get someone to follow you. 20 miles at 30mph = 40 minutes, jeez I've drug stuff with no tires that far.

Make sure the tires are not PASSENGER TIRES! Our AS came with really nice looking tires, we drove home on the hwy. 300 miles and come to find out the tires were 2ply passenger tires! WE COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED or killed someone else.

First things first...I need to tow it down Hwy 101 about 20 miles to my place. It has newer tires, wheels, and bearings. I haven't tested the towing hook-ups yet. What do you folks recommend to ensure a safe tow?

(I've got a 1995 Toyota T-100 SR5 4x2 w/5000lb rated tow weight.)

With much appreciation,
