    Looked at purchasing a set of Mickey Thompson Classic Locks, found a good price from 4wp, ordered them only to find out they were not in-stock. I am leaving the country in January and didn't want to hassle with that, so I canceled my order.

    I found a vendor selling another wheel I really liked, they had them in-stock, placed my order and they shipped that day. They arrived two days later...Wheelsforless.com had the wheels on sale, free shipping, lug nuts and valve stems. Great place to shop!

    Here are the pics:

    They bolted right up with no problem...plenty of clearance between the wheel and the caliper!! I will mount them early next week and update with pics.

    This is a nice riding tire...much better than the OEM Rugged Trail...I used the chalk method to determine that 27 psi front and 30 psi rear are the correct pressures for maximum contact.

    Enjoy!!

    m.a.c.

    p.s. This thing needs a lift...rubbing on the mudflaps during turning and traveling off road...or you could do a little trimming of the flaps and I am sure it would be fine!
