Default 235/75/15 Tires

Tommorow Im going to the junkyard to pull 4 of these rims off an explorer

Well I went to the junkyard today and the rims pictures above were there, but I noticed rims in way better shape like the kind shown below and I'm getting them, same price also.

Should still look good

That's what I got, they aren't spectacular but they get the job done. I'm updating my wheels in the next year...same tires, no reason to change em so they stay till the cords show through!!

I like the deer hooves, but I also have them. If they are in better shape, get em, they are all temporary.
