I have been wanting the BMF Novakane 8s since they came available. I wrapped the 20x10s with 355/50R20 Kumhos. I wrapped the lug nuts with masking tape, and hand tightened, hoping to keep from chipping the powder coat. Worked but it was a pain removing the tape afterwards. I did break the socket that came with the lug nuts, so I have to call for another.

After the UPS came:

looks great..how do you like the tires so far?
I don't have enough miles on the tires to justify, but I will be taking a road trip in few weeks and I will report back then.

also how much lift do you have?
I have 4.5" Icon coils and 1" spacers. Sits about 5" of lift. The front bumper and winch weighs 400lbs., so it sags a bit.

I did it in a weekend with a buddy of mine helping out. 85% of it is bolt-up. I had to fabricate a steering link so I could keep the '99-04 steering box, and drill a few holes for the coil buckets and radius arm brackets. Most of the holes are already in the frame so there is no guess work.

Thanks for all the compliments.

Man, I'm so glad I got the Kumho's... I think that looks amazing. But I'm still gonnna probably stick it out for the 20x12's... My Kumhos are stacked up in the spare bedroom. LOL
I am curious to see how they look on a 20x12, gotta be a lot wider. It will make the tires a tad shorter too. Either way you are gonna love'em!

What do those tires measure out to?
Road Venture AT KL-78

1823613 LT355/50R20 122S E BSW — 10.0 - 12.0 14.2 on 10.5 34.0 74.1 15.4 611 18.0 3305 - 65

Price on the tires was so much better than the Toyos which made it an easy decision, plus everyone has Toyos.

id like to know how loud they are.
I got the same tires in a 36. They are really quiet. Smoother running tires. Love 'em
I won't be driving it much this week. I have my PSC hydraulic assist coming in and will be installing that, along with a new track bar set-up. But I will report back when I put some real miles on the truck.
