    If someone paid me $1300, I wouldn't put rockstars on my truck.






    But seriously, give us some more info here. Size of the tires, tread wear. Did you look up how much that combo sells for new?

    That's a 2k setup easy, KPT. It's not a bad deal, but you'll end up replacing the Interco's fast as hell.... those things just don't last

    Is it a 2K setup if the tires have no tread left?

    I'm just saying, he didn't give us much to go on.

    1300 is plenty of money for a deposit for a penile implant, but not as flashy as cockstars.... Just kidding.

    Interco's are expensive as shit.... I love how people say 30% tread left at 3/32" of tread. As much as I hate to admit it, I'd put the Duratrac's on before the Interco's...

    i like my rockstars, but they are expensive as hell though. if you want a good tire the duratracks are good, kelly safari tsr's are really good tires. i have about 50,000 miles on mine.

    sorry guys a buddy of mine is selling them the tires have 80+ percent of tread left they are only 3 months old and the exact size im not sure the width is 12.5 and i wana say they are 285's not sure the full specs and i used to be a rockstar fan but not anymore just seemed to me like a pretty decent deal and the least i found a set with tires was around 1700+ if it was my choice and i had the money i would put the kmc black HOSS on my rig but i might not be able to pass the deal up

    I'd flip it and put what you want to put on your rig. I'm considering flipping my Moto's now...

    quick question, for kmc Rockstars what kinf of lug nuts do you need, i know the size is 12x1.5 and i know the OEM factory lug nuts dont fit, any advice will be greatly appreciated. like where did you buy them, and how much are they, also if you used any kind of spacers to fit them and how thick.

    Thanks for the quick reply and the links, now just one doubt.
    Is there a certain Style that will fit the kmc wheel hole better so u get more thread? Like: acorn, hex, key, mag, nut, spline and does it matter if they are regular or the ones with extended shank are recommended?
