    Rugged Trails worn out at 21k, decided to get new tires. General Grabber AT2 265/70/16. Wife said," might as well get some new wheels". I said ok. Got some Eagle alloys 185, 16x8. Discount tire were great, they beat NTB's price by 200 bucks. Sorry for the cell phone pics, but here they are. Deep tread on these Grabbers, just like the BFG all terrain I had on my old truck.

    Looks good, except the wheels are black.

    Really havent noticed the tire noise. I can tell you that my ride is smoother with more rubber on the road.

    I have Grabber AT2s in the same size on stock steelies. Very satisfied with the performance. They also seem to have non-existent/minimal wear after 10k miles.
