At the 61 Way Café… “Jest act casual, fellers. We covered our tracks purty good. ‘Sides, he got no authority off da rez.”
Lieutenant Hiram Silverthorn, Jr. slowly looked over the big Chevy 4×4 Crew-Cab—paying particular attention to the tread-design of the tires. And he found what he was looking for! The tires were custom “Xtreme Off-Road Premium by TirePro”—not the more common off-road tires used be serious off-roaders.
