    Being a high school student, money doesn't flow to well. Haha.
    Washed and waxed countless boats to get my truck new tires and wheels! Had Bilstein Shocks put in last month.
    Tires are 285/70/17 Cooper STT
    Wheels are 17" FJs.
    I was set on Hankooks but it would have taken forever to get them in and they cost about 100 bucks more. I am so happy I got the Coopers. They are quieter than my old BFG All Terrains. They look really good to me.

    Enough Jabbering, here are pictures!

    Haha yeah. I'm glad I didn't go the cheap route of lifting and wheels/tires. It seemed like forever but I can't be happier with the way it looks now.

    Thanks man! I love it.

    Yeah I got the wheels in North Carolina and I'm in South Carolina. Lots of Craigslist searching.

    Ended up getting 5 wheels with one mounted with a brand new spare for $300.

    Thanks for all the compliments everyone

    Very Nice man! Great job and choice!:thumbsup:

    Those would look pretty awsome Black! But I know... you like them how they are, and they do look good. :D
    I need to get me either those tires or the Hankook MT. bc I im not liking my BFG's.

    Yeah I wanted to powdercoat them, but I would get so many chips.

    These tires are quiter than the BFGs man! I promise. They are easily the quitest mud terrain I have heard. That being said though, I only have like 20 miles on them haha

    Thanks!

    Nice setup man. Now time to get out and let us know how they grip.

    Finally you get to see that hard work pay off. I worked a ton after school just to buy my truck, now I gotta work more to mod it (while paying for college bills).
