    Found these in the FS section locally. Not my first choice for wheels but they look better than what was on it. Moto Metal 951 18x9, 4.5 BS, with Nitto Terra Grappler 285/65/18. I will get better pictures ASAP. I didn't want to look like a goofball at work taking pictures of my truck out in the parking lot. I've got some trimming to do on the mud flaps when I get home. I'm going to try to keep them on the truck to preserve the paint, but if I have to take them off I will. Other than that, it rubs a little bit on the front of the wheel well plastic at full lock so I will do a little trimming there as well. I was concerned that the ride was going to be drastically firmer with the E load rating on these tires compared to the Michelin LTX AT2s I was running but it's not that much different. It is more firm by like 10% but still not unbearable.

    New pics added. I'm adding more as I upload. Forgot my cable to connect my blackberry to the computer so I'm having to email them to myself and it is taking a while.
