Default Stolen Q78 Swampers

Some one stole the q78 swampers off my friends Runner that was parked at Evergreen Aviation on Merril Field. These tires were cut by Niko on the board for his Samurai and traded hands a few times and ended up owned by Ely. These are pretty unique size and the cuts make them even more unique, they are mounted on crappy beat up aluminum wheels that are painted black. If any one see or knows any thing let me know. Hes out of town wrenching on helos so he cant deal with this. Gimme a ring or PM me, Josh 317-8788.

I think I saw them today on a jeep on, of all places FT Rich. I hope I am wrong It was a grey CJ7 and it drove off before I could get a look. They were cut exactly the same as Nikos. If I do run them down I'll get MPI on it.

I'd find it really had to believe theres another set of Q78's with the same pattern. And since they're hand cut I'm sure they're easily identifiable, especially after the hell that Ely has put them through. Proving ownership might be a ***** though...

I hope they are them. Like Ken said will be hard to say/prove they are stolen.

I drove around post a little today after work, But I could not find the jeep. I know there are more FT Rich guys on here, keep you eyes out for the Jeep. Grey CJ-7 with a bunch of stickers on it.

My guess is that if they are the same tires, he probably bought them from the theif. He had a 5-6 year old little girl in the jeep with him and he was at the main FT Rich shoppette. Does not seem like the kind of stuff a steet smart theif would do.



I work with the MPs all the time, so having them look into it would not be an issue.

These were recovered this last weekend. Unused and sitting in a towing lot. I guess the guy who owned the lot bought them off Clist and found out they were stolen and returned them to Ely.

The whole story is kinda weird but atleast Ely has his tires back. Hats off to the guy for returning them to Ely at a loss....
