got some new wheels!

let me know what you all think about them, I really wanted to move up to 18's but a 285/75R18 is $60-120 more per tire so that was out and stayed with 16's

Re: got some new wheels!

They look great! It's funny but I remember when I said the same thing about 16" wheels over my 15" ones on my old k5 blazer. now the debate is over 18's, 20's or even 22's haha!

Re: got some new wheels!

I think they are great! I will be getting some new tires soon but I think I am going to go with the Mickey Thompson baja atz's. The Toyo's did great for what I need in most situations. The only issue is they do not wear very long. If they lasted a bit longer I think they would be perfect. I had the MT's before and they lasted me over 35xxx miles!

Looks good

Its crazy how big the tire prices jump by wheel size, main reason I went with 18's instead of 20's on my truck. Getting new toyo m/t's put on tonight, and the check book is not happy but my terra grapplers are more like slicks than anything
