    '12 Tacoma RC 4x4 (Sold) '14 Ram 1500, '99 4R
    Level 8 Trackers, Hankook Dynapro LT265/75/16, Bilstein 5100's @ 2.5, Wheelers 3-Leaf Progressive w/ factory overload, 5100s all around // Ranch Camper Shell, BHLM, hacked reverse lights, auxiliary reverse lights // Pioneer AVH-P1400DVD, RF Prime Components, BOSS 10" Sub
    So, my day started off with trying some Pro Comp Series 98, 4.25" backspacing. Hit calipers despite some folks claiming to run 'em without mention of spacers. Ah well, cost was like $360 or something, never mounted em so back to the local 4WP warehouse/storefront they go.

    The itch was not satisfied.

    Read some more on here this afternoon, wished MB72s were still available in black, maybe even cried a little. Hopped over to discounttiredirect instead of regular discounttire and saw the Level 8 trackers 16x8.5 -6 in satin black (that's a 4.5" offset btw).

    Then I saw that they were $109 in DTD. Then I saw that they were $50 off 'Web Only!' ontop of being $16 cheaper than from store/regular site. Called my local store, about 3 minutes away, they said they'd price match everything.

    So uh NICE. $125 wheel, down to $109, down to $96.50 ($386/4) after $50 savings. Providing my own lugs, letting them do TPMS stuff just because I'd rather follow everything they say and have success with going from stock steels to aftermarket alloys with no TPMS hassle.

    While i get free rotations/balancing for life from Sears (where I got my tires), I knew they'd charge me about $50 to swap tires to new rims and then do the free balance. DT wanted $64 to swap tires AND road force balance, and then I can rotate and balance there for free. I used to work at Sears and would prefer DT do it from now on :)

    Will post pics at end of the week when they're in and installed.
