If you are going to wheel like we do I think the like should be drawn closer to function because you are just going to fuck up the wheels anyway.

I can't find a good pic, but see all the silver spots on my wheel? Those are scratches. All 4 wheels are scratched up really good.


one thing I do like about these wheels is the lug nuts are tucked inside really good.

Look mom, no lugnuts


and they were on my rig when I bought so they were basically free anyway so I can't complain

Well I just took a look and found the bighorns for $186
And km2s for only a little more, so nevermind I guess 215 isn't a good deal

I was in pep boys 2 night ago doing an oil change on my dd and out of curiosity I asked what they had in 255 and the only thing they could get was the maxxis and they were in the around 160 something.... Funny part was the he could only get 4.... he would have to transfer 3 from like Indiana and one from ny....

Have been racking my brain trying to decide if I wanted to go the tall n skinny route...Glad I did!! Man I love the look and ride of these tires plus how quite they are on pavement. Have them mounted on 6x8,s with 4" BS.

That's the stance I'm looking for. I'm running stock B.S. rims now. When I get new tires I'm going to need some rims. Seems like limited choices in 4" BS. I'm looking at getting Dick Cepek DC2's unless I find something else I like.

Super happy I made the switch! I was on 285 toyo a/t's and loved those, but these new tires ride smoother. Only difference is they hum a little more than the old ones, but it's unnoticeable for the most part.

These are the toyo mts



Hadn't had the chance to take them wheeling. Hopefully soon though!

Sorry for the washed out picture, anyway they are flush with the fenders, whereas the old wheel and tires stuck out a good inch or more




I took this when I was switching ^


Here both of them are on.
