Bad times turned to good!

So today i come out of school to get into my truck at lunch and discover my tire had been slashed.... i got towed home and didnt go back.

my birdthday is coming up in a week and my mom called and told me to call up the local americas tire and get some wheels and tires for my bday now since i need a new tire anyway.

so im thinking these

with these

Black wheels on your white truck man FTW.

ricey styled wheel, will look stupid on your truck at stock height unless you lower it 3/4 by the time you get those wheels on.

HUH your right I clicked it a second time and a whole different wheel came up.

The second wheel looks a lot better but I still say black FTW on your truck.

Dude that is not going to stop them, you need to try and find out who did it and get them to pay for the fixing of the tire. I know at my HS they had cameras all over to watch for this sort of crap

those wheels look horrible with that size tire on them, either a low profile or a big meaty tire on them but a normal tire just doesnt do it, unless the truck was slammed.
