Got new wheels today!

Got my new wheels put on today. Ultra Mongoose 16x8, discovered the old tires were starting to dry rot, so went ahead and put new tires on as well, Toyo Open Country AT II, Very happy with the way they turned out

and Thank You sir, so far I am very pleased with this rim/tire combination, the tires have much better traction than the Michelins that were on it before, and the rims look great. I hope I get a decent tread life out of the tires.

I'm at 105K miles on a set of Open County tires. Worn very well and even. BUT these are the 10 ply (Load range E) versions which had 2/32 more tread than the standard load range. I will be purchasing them again this fall. I think I'll knock it down to load range D this time. I'm not hauling as much as I used to and I don't visit too many construction sites anymore.

The combo does look good.

Thank You, and its good to know you got such good life out of yours, I will have to double check, but I think I saw load range E on the sidewall, but even if I get half of what you got I will be happy, I don't know why but I am hard on tires
