Can't believe I missed all this! Wow what a turn around. Great lookin' Fiddy though.

These are the new 2011 F150 STX 18inch wheels. I just started seeing them, I'm in love haha.

If I get a 07-08 F-150 like I want next year I will be picking up a set of these for my 35s hahaha.

Yea I do miss certain parts about it. The idle, the power and size...

The things i dont miss, is the worry of it breaking, loud on long trips, bouncing down back roads, expensive fuel, expensive parts, higher insurance, etc etc.

Im still really happy, tomorrow its getting aligned and newer tires. Cant wait to see it. I installed new tie rods all around and new shocks all around (bilstein 5100s) it rides and drives like brand new now. The tires will improve it even more.

What kind of tires are you getting. I know you've been itching to get rid of those BFG's on there. lol

I got them for Free. They should last through the winter maybe a little longer. I think they are like 1200 new. But I plan to buy the Nitto Terra Grapplers when I buy new next time. I like the 325/60/18 vs the 325/65/18 because they are shorter and dont kill the mpg as bad as a 35.

amen to that, im kinda in this way right now especially with MT's on the DD, man they look good but the ride is such a drawback.

Have the ranger up for sale, need something with more room and just not really happy with it anymore. Actually looking for 04-08 F150 similar to yours except I want an 06/07 extended cab 4.6 stx 4x4 but you get the point. Been getting tons of calls on the ranger just not getting anyone to commit, but I tried to put it up for a good deal.

Just wish it'd sale and itd be alot less to worry about, and get something else that ill be happier with and obviously the fact that here soon im going to need the extra room lol. Hopefully w.e I can get next I can keep fairly moderate but I know I probably wont, just like if no one buys the ranger ill probably end up keeping it and dumping tons of money into it like an idiot but I already have it up for a good price, I dont just want to give it away and lose abunch of money when I shouldn't but I guess ill see how it goes.

Goodluck, good looking new truck as always lol.

wtf lol my km2s are perfect for a daily. sure you can hear them when you drive, but only a little bit and not at all if the radio is on. they grip just fine and are all around comfortable for daily driving

Only thing I dont like about MTs are the stone chips and fuel mileage effects.

Mine are super loud, even with the radio on. No complaints about how the handle, its just the noise.

Your truck is also sound deadened isn't it?

My mileage has always been the same, when I had 33 all terrains I got the same mileage as I do with the tires I have now.

It is, but I usually have my windows down when I drive. The only time I hear my tires at all, is when the radio is off and my windows are down. Well on the highway they're a little louder than around town, but again as long as I have my radio on you can't hear them
