Thumbs up tires make all the difference

I had my new rims and tires installed last night and I couldn't be happier with the look (what a huge difference ).

Driving to work this morning I did notice a few things. the ride is a lot stiffer with the new package and I think I will need to get some bigger brakes (they are quite a bit more spongy than they were, which threw me for a loop at the first stop light).... close one! And I also noticed the turning isn't as tight as it was (another sobering moment at the first roundabout ). these are probably obvious differences but as a newbie I have never experienced what a difference a bigger tire package makes.

If you have a package with 215/70/15's, I would highly recommend stepping up to 235/75/15's. They fill in the wheel wells perfectly and they don't rub at all.

the truck now demands attention and is a lot tougher looking.

now on to the next (Satoshi grill) project!
