lol a fetish...

I tried to just get all terrains but I found these which I really wanted in the first place and at 85ish a tire less than all the other sites. So I ordered them. Most of the all terrains spiked in price over the last few months. MT tires are far superior IMO and worth the little bit of extra coin.

i do like getting new tires. I dont care for the payment though.

I like to do wheels and tires too, but I really dont want to spend another 1600 for some wheels.

Nice! Think an MT would look good on my Edge? I'm looking at tires too, although obviously not an MT or even an AT.

Sounds like my old truck Nick. I went through tires like a chick goes through underwear. Ate a set of TrXuS MTs in 3 months. 1 set of Dick Cepek MTs in 6 months. 1 set of Mickey Thompson MTs in 7 months. Second set of Dick Cepek MTs in 8 months.

Nice buy Zack. Mind if I ask where ya got the good price on them? I agree that ATs went way up in price lately.

yeah i hope so.

i just put the lift on tonight but it is a little too much lift in the front IMO. So I either need larger blocks in the rear or lower the front some.

Interesting that the toyos are only about $2 difference per tire between a 35x12.50R17 and 35x12.50R18... KM2s are normally $50 different per tire.

I had toyo m/ts ordered for my truck, but I had to cancel the order when I found out that they would rub the upper control arm on stock wheels due to the more aggressive side wall. I may end up buying a set whenever I finally lift the truck and get different wheels. My only real complaint about the KM2s to date is that the sidewall feels a little soft on my truck with D rated tires. The 7.5" wheel isn't helping a lot though either I'm sure.

Your truck didn't look like it had a lot of rake in the first place, so I'm not surprised.
