    Alright. So. I used to live in the Black Hills, So Whelin' was a weekly thing for me. Thats why I have the 265' Mud Terrains, Well long story short I moved 400 miles to the East and now everything is flat, Tires arent really practical anymore So i'm switching to Street Tires soon.

    So I wanna see some 1st gens on 17's or 18's. Preferablly A D-cab if ya got em!

    Well I'm debating it right now. All my truck ever sees now is City driving, But i'd still like it to look nice. 17's or 18' Dick Cepek's are what I'm looking at

    I do too, but the Tires have such a huge tread pattern that its just noisy and ridiculous. I think street tires might not be too bad

    Do you have any good photos of your truck with those tires. I have been debating street tires too.

    I've heard great things about Cooper ATR's.

    I just got Cooper STT's (their MT) on my truck last week since my AT's needed replaced.
