old stock rims

new goodyears and i found some 15" doe print factory rims but need the rear caps to replace the 2 from the 4x4 knockout from the previous truck.
and i know the nit-wit at the tireshop didn't take off the stickers on the tread face.

Sweet deal. Can't beat the price.


The weight savings from the steel wheels to the aluminum rims may off set the bigger tire as far as the MPG goes.

true on the weight savings. my step-brother sold the tires to me at his cost so i can't really say what the markup value i saved.

I use photobucket too, but is sure as hell sucks. Confusing layout. There's an option to set image size, though.
