New XD Hoss' and AT2's

Put on new tires today, 265/75/16 Grabber AT2's, wanted Duratracs but got these for $87each, with XD Hoss's.
Love the way it turned out. The AT2's have a deeper tread than what I
thought and ride good, little to no road noise.

Side view, tires are bout 1/2" past the fenders...




XD close up..........




From the front........

Thanks, debating on removing the chrome centercaps, and I need to tone down the headlight assy. Maybe BHLM and Trex's but that will be later.
Going to bed line the tool box next week tho.

I work for Continental, which owns General, so I get a employee discount.
IF the had MT's, I would have got those.
I also wish I could have gotten the Red Letter Grabbers but they were not available.

The are much more aggressive than I thought. A few guys I work with have them but they are wore down.

They are really quiet on the road, haven't gone off road yet. Maybe tomorrow, we are expecting rain.

Thanks for the complements.
After driving around a bit I found that I had to remove my front mudflaps. I was
scrubbing bad making right or left turns in normal driving. These wheels have a 4.5" BS and 0 offset. Not sure why the tires (10.5" wide) were hitting them but it is no big deal.
The tires are great, (E-load btw) no road noise to speak of and look great.
I do not notice any power loss (I have a 4banger) and I do not care about MPG.
I live in the mountains and have no problems going up and down the hills.

try plastidip the center caps instead od removing them.
I originally plasti coated my satoshi grill and it looked great, problem occurred when it got a tear and there was no repairing it. I ended up peeling it off and just painting it.
May just paint the center caps in the next couple of days. Thanks for the tip tho!
