Parking lot supremacy is achieved when you have a truck

You pull into a lot, eager to find a decent spot. There it is. Turn the wheel, easy on the throttle, ramble on up and start to pull into “your” space. But it’s not your space, and someone else wants to park there too. Who gets the spot? If you hesitate, it’s going to be lost. We also don’t advise getting out of your car to have a friendly discussion on why that spot should belong to you. Even if you find out that you have a shared bond because you’re both running Toyo tires on your respective rides.

The real way to nab that spot is to drive the right vehicle for the job. In this case, it’s a Ford Raptor and the parking spot is best accessed from the bush and curb side of the lot.

    If the “Toyo tires” part wasn’t that much in-your-face, this would actually be funny. “So we both got Toyo tires, how are we going to handle this” feels a lot like “real people”, 8/10 on the cringe-o-meter.

      Meh, it’s clearly an ad. But it’s still amusing.

      It’s the “Real Chevy” of tire commercials.

    I’ve found that driving a rusty pickup or a slightly dated and dented luxury car is a good way to achieve road and parking lot supremacy. They signal to other motorists that you just don’t care.

      An old truck wearing a snow plow hitch, even minus the plow, makes for most other drivers giving you plenty of space.

    Toyo Tires are now on my No-Fly list. Also, in addition to being my least favorite sport I find the sight of UFC ears makes me queasy …

      Similar thing for rugby. I remember hearing a commentator say “look at
      those ears, you couldn’t fit the sharp end of a pencil in there, that’s

      When I played I taped my ears.
