4x4 tire ads? Really?

Okay, I get the whole need for sponsored posts. I really do. Site costs money and very very few users actually pony up.

But seriously... why in the H E doublehockeysticks are we being shown ads for Jeep tires?

Not only is this not a 4x4 forum, it's not a car forum. It's not even an off-road motorcycle forum. It's a SPORTBIKE FORUM.

Dear Nitto: We. Are. Not. Your. Target. Audience.

I guess if Nitto is dumb enough to spend its money advertising to us because we.. um... because... maybe because our hobby uses gasoline? then Gixxer should take it and run.

Cool Re: 4x4 tire ads? Really?

i think this is a great place for 4x4 ads.. people on here have one thing in common with jeep guys.. the willingness to JEEP-> (JustEmptyEveryPocket) to make there toy biger/better/faster

you own a toy (cruzer scooter dirtbike streetbike fourwheeler or mudbogger) that you are willing to spend big money to upgrade

if you like bikes chances are you have a inner gearhead.... gearheads WILL spend money on upgrades for there motorized vehicles and that is a FACT

Well clearly it's because it works, you noticed the add enough to make a post about it. There have been a whole bunch of studies about how advertising works, cause it does.

Welcome to a forum owned by Vertical Scope. I have adblock and don't see the ads anymore but was equally annoyed with them.

Re: 4x4 tire ads? Really?

So if it makes sense to put 4x4-specific ads here then....

Maybe Suzuki should put GSXR ads on the 4x4 forums.

I guess it makes just as much sense to bring in ads for, oh, I don't know... jetskis? Import tuner shops? Classic car restoration supply houses? Cars? RVs? Anything and everything with a motor?

'cause, you know, EVERYBODY here has a car and loves all things gasoline-powered, right?

Yeah, I noticed the ad because it was SO out of place.

You see, now you are just being stupid. Most of the things you posted have absolutely NOTHING to do with motorcycles. I am sure there are hundreds of people on this forum that are the target audience for a tire ad. Jetskis? No. RV?s maybe, I know Toejam has one, I am sure there a few other racers that have or are interested in one.

Just because this is a motorcycle forum doesnt mean that the members aren't into other things. In fact I just bought a new truck that needs tires, maybe I should find that ad.

Re: 4x4 tire ads? Really?

← daily driver 89 Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4. Needs new tires too. Can you post a link to that ad? I would like to support businesses that advertise on the forum, because if it wernt for them this forum might not exist.
