New winter rims/tires

I got tired of the center caps always coming off on my stock steelies so I decided to get some new winter steelies. The brand is Unique 16x7 5x135mm. They are rebranded Cragar Soft 8 Black wheels. I was not able to get the Cragars locally. The shop I got them from was not able to get them from any of their distributors. Ordering the Cragars from the US and picking them up at the border was almost the same price as getting the rebranded ones. The local price including taxes, mounting/balancing was just over $500. I got the tires for free from my dad, they are just over 18 months old and they won't fit on his new truck so he gave them to me, Michelin LTX AT2 265/75/16. They do rub on the mud flaps when I back up if I turn too tight and there is a slight rub going forward if I make a right turn with full lock but I'll live with it.







Whaddya mean I dont pay my bills?? Whydya think I'm broke!!

Sharp looking wheel for a winter steelie, and the price was right...can't get much better than that. Looks good!

I approve of that look.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.

Looks good. Winter steelies, but without winter tires. LTX A/T2 are aggressive looking all terrains, not winter tires.

They are M+S rated but they are far better than the my old Firestone ATs which were just about worn out and for the price they'll do for the next few winters. If I had to buy winter tires I was giving the General Altimax some serious thought. WIth 300+# os sand bags in the bag and the trutrac diff I'll be fine, its not like I'm gonna be going in deep mountain snow
