LOL. bet you were all thinking "someone is on drugs"


spur of the moment, found 4 35" tires with wheels for stupid cheap, the tread is basically gone, however im not concerned about that as they are simply rollers. wont be used for driving on aside from short distances around the yard to test with when i get my SAS done up.



think i should put some 35's on the focus.....

Haha I've got them on the truck now, I don't even wanna know how bad the mpg is.

They're so worn down, mounted on the truck @ 35 psi they measure exactly 33" tall haha.

Store was out of black haha. So I said screw it, let's get crazy. So I painted them blue lol.

When I get my actual 35's I'll be ditching the steel wheels. They're just so damn heavy compared to aluminum

Really? I've never run a steel wheel before. I didn't realize they were that much heavier
