Thanks! When I picked the truck up yesterday I was like F*** what did I do!

After looking at the tires more and driving it and such, I am still on the fence on keeping them, but they are starting to grow on me..

Wow , looks cool dude .

Your 3rd pic makes me think that the tire is destined to hit the fender under any flex though . Have you tried flexing it yet ?

I personally have not flexed them. I asked the alignment shop I went to flexed to make sure they will not rub the frame. They checked and said it was close but I should be ok. I will have to trim that plastic crap off the front which is fine with me because after wheeling on time I broke the clips and the right side is just dangling there now.
