Default New Tires Today

Got some Goodyear Wrangler All-Terrains today for a steal. $90 a tire! My old ones were so worn they were creating a pull in the front and since they were 7 years old that doesn't suprise me. I thought I'd go all out and get some All-Terrains, turns out they were cheaper due to a sale than they stock tires. I was so excited. It raised me up about an inch, cured my pull, and now when I go to change the oil (which I did today) my nose doesn't touch the truck. All for about $400 Lol

Sorry, I took a couple with the Itouch today when I got them put on, really bad quality. Tomorrow I will go out (should be nice weather) with the camera and get some good pics.

Before:


After:




Not a huge difference because they're the same size tire, but that tread alone adds an extra inch.

Wow, that picture was a year ago and those tires were BALD then, I don't know why I never changed them out

Thanks man. I think I might paint the wheels flat black, but they're so shiny I don't know if I should.

If I don't do it this month I will definitely get it done once the summer rolls around. I think I might have someone photoshop it to see what it looks like because I would hate to paint it all and then hate the way they look.

I spent a little time breaking the tires in today, so much fun. Went to a trail and tore it up, then went to the top floor of our parking garage at my college and did some donuts, (ok, more like a donut because I hated the thought of burning all that new rubber), they are so new that the streaks came out DARK black on a tan pavement, they'll love that. Never had tires with such traction before, its amazing the difference it makes.

Quick question: What would removing the mudflaps do for the truck visually? I always hear people saying they should remove them. Does it make it look taller, cleaner, what? I mean I guess I can do it tomorrow and if I don't like it bolt them back on

Yeah, if the paint on mine was a little beat up maybe I'd do that, but I don't want to take the chance. I've yet to get one scratch on my golden beauty.

Not all of us can be that lucky. Mine's just a plain jane, but the tires are just the first of many mods to come that will hopefully change that
