    Cody, You coming to Taco's on the Beach at A-Basin Sunday? Go for the bumper or look into Armorology in Co Springs.

    I have eagle alloy 137's, my stupid tire guy at the time got them for me, problem is they have 4.625 backspacing (stock is 4.5), so I got 1.5'' spacers, which sets them to 3.125'' backspacing :p
