New Shoes and socks

Took the plunge this morning and got some new rubber.

When I first got the truck at the lot.


Added some flares, I put in a leveling kit a few years ago as well. Holes now look huge and tires awfully small.


As it sits now. Much better look in my opinion.

Better stance and wheels look more proportional now, nothing worse than huge hole.

Nice mods, congrats.

Thanks. I put the flares on last spring and the large looking holes had been bugging me every time I looked at it.

Yah, the things that bug the hell out of you every time you look at them are usually the most satisfying mods once they're done.

More aggressive tread pattern on the tires might have a little more road noise, but look good.

What are you running for tires ?

The tires are Atturo Trail Blade MT. Not your everyday brand. They are made in Thailand. They seem to be well rated though. A bit more hum on the highway but really not all that noisy. They are 35/12.50/18.

The black wheels look great on the white truck.

Thanks. I spent months looking. I had tires and wheels chosen. I came away with the ones I thought I was going to get.
