New tires and Plasti dip

it was time for new tires as the winter rim/tire combo im running is almost 10 years old and i didnt know how long tires are good for so i replaced them.

also plasti-dip the winter rims cause these were off my 97F150 and were showing a little rust.

Before


After



Really? Its the Internet take it easy.

Turned out really nice Blair, can't go wrong with the Blizzak's either. I'd say after ten years they certainly don't owe you anything.

i actually dont have center caps. the chrome lugs that comes on the harley wont fit with the stock center cap/ rim combo.

ya my truck go less then 10k a year and 2/3 of that has to be with summer tires on. the ones i took off still could have last at least another year. but with a carseat in the back this winter i said why not splurge the $600 mounted and balanced at costco for blizzaks. no one else could get below $800 for any winter tire.

That's because we've all seen them in some of your other pics.

Nice clean up I like the plastidip texture.

If you haven't driven on them before you're going to love the DMV-1's. I've got them for my winters and they are amazing.
