K2500: rotated tires

I moved the front tires (which are two years newer, and have a fair amount more tread) to the back, the backs to the front, and swapped the lefts and rights. I also aired up all the tires and the spare.

As usual, I was impressed by how useless my Craftsman impact wrench is. I had to use a tire iron for most of the lug nuts, due to rust. I put anti-seize on all the studs before putting the lugnuts back on.

The fronts are almost out of tread (dated week 51 of 2010), and the rears have got maybe another year left (dated early 2012).

I also aired up the Ram’s tires.
