    ok so i got the Pro Comp 8069 wheels. i want to get new tires as well polly the Hancooks AT(currently running michelin LTX MS) but money wise gotta wait a while on the tires. so here is the question, should i mount the wheels and run them on the current tires or should i save them til i get the tires i want? check my gallery for pics of truck

    Depends how long you have to wait. If its under a month, I'd just wait to get the tires as well. Over a month and I'd probably end up putting them on.

    Also, it would depend how much it's going to cost you to get the tires removed, mounted, and balanced, as it'll probably end up costing that same amount again when you get the new tires.

    I would wait for tires. I just got the same wheels mounted on my truck. But my tires have wuite a bit of life left. It was like 180 for the mount. including new lugs, stems and balance. Plus dismount and mount.

    If you "rock" your new wheels now, your'e gonna have to pay for the dis mount and then again to mount them, and once you get the new tires you have to pay AGAIN. But if you just wait all you have to do is pay once for the mount and balance. Just wait.
