    sticks out just enough i think.

    also, when turns really sharp, i think they might be rubbing. i can hear something. the wheels are 17x8.5 4.25 bs -12 offset

    Nice. They remind me of the ATX Artillery.

    It just depends on how bad it is. After a little bit (won't take long), you should be able to see some marks/wear on the areas where it is rubbing.

    You can also put some chalk on the most common areas (UCA, front valence, etc.) and then just go drive around your neighborhood and see where it rubs off the most.

    Either way, I like that combo a lot - looks great! :thumbsup:

    Turn your radio up? :p

    Nothing special about them aside from being sure to rotate them.

    The only thing that has ever bothered me about mud-terrains is that they are hard to find in lower load ranges (especially with 17's). The higher the load range, the stiffer the ride.

    If you ever feel like you're getting bounced out of your seat, do the chalk test on them to be sure you (or the shop) don't have them aired up too high. I did this on my '07 with 17's and MTZ's and I had to drop it about 4psi before it passed the test. It's amazing what 4psi can do for ride quality, too. :D

    You shouldn't be rubbing at all with your 3" lift and tire size you're running. If anything, it's more than likey your front mud flaps. Take those suckers off.

    thanks. yeah i can hear them when i'm driving, but doesn't bother me too much.

    so far the ride is pretty good. i'll keep that in mind though

    thanks. i thought about getting sliders, but decided to just go with these. i like them alright.

    that's what i was thinking. anybody run just the ones in the back, or should i just take all of them off?

    If you're going to take any of them off, I would just take them all off. They will more than likely get ripped off sooner or later anyway.

    Lots of guys run without them with no issues.

    I have only the rear ones. No issues.

    I'll let them rip off when they're good and ready.

    Thanks! I'm not sure yet. Probably seat covers and eventually an exhaust

    I got them at a local shop, $500 installed including tax.

    Yeah I noticed it again today, I think it's the mud flaps.

    Also, driving on a gravel road with these tires isn't a great idea. Rocks were flying down the road afterwards
