    Got my new babies installed...

    Got the wheels from Dicount tire......<600$ Choas wheels I think 5.5 BS. 9" wheel...besrue to check...

    Tires, Walmart Goodyear 265 -17-70..... They are rubbing a bit where my 265-16-75 did not.....
    Cost 800$ or so.....

    I had them balanced, mounted and installed at Sears....they did a great job......

    Discount tire said they would unconditionally warranty there tires till the end of life....Not like the other stores, if you blow one out 75% into the wear they make you pay that amount for a tire that you only need 25% life.....something to think about.. I wish I would have done it....

    A.) you can still purchase that warranty from Discount Tire.
    B.) your wheels are 8.5" wide.
    C.) you can purchase lifetime balancing on those tires too, therefore you don't have to deal with anybody but DTC for your tires.

    So far I love them. They are just a little bit nosier then the BFG ATs, still acceptable noise for myself.

    Thanks for the info on Discount tire......

    Chaos 6...right? Thanks for posting these!! I've been searching the internet trying to see these in real life as opposed to the Discount website pic. These look way better than I was expecting.

    Exactly what I was thinking.. I finally quit looking and ordered hoping for the best....Got them on and was surprised. They are not to flashy but looked not just plain....

    Those are GY Wrangler MT's right? You went from AT to MT tires, expect more noise. Wheels look nice, tires do too.

    agree 100%...I want different that the chrome stocks I have now...but I don't want really flashy wheels. I like those.
