325/60/18s and 15% (F150 content)

Finally got the F150 tinted this week, then I added some 325/60/18s to it. GoodYear Silent Armor tires. I think it fits the leveling kit well.

yea! for blurry pics...

Nice, Beard!

If you don't mind me asking, how much was it to tint your windows? That's my next thing to do on the Chevy.

looks awesome. just curious. how much clearance do you have b/w the tire and the rear shocks? my dad has the same wheels on his 06 150 fx4 with 285 BFG a/t's and theres not much room there.

now thats the kinda f-150 i like, leveled but subtle, looks real nice, i especially like the fact that you used the stock wheels, now if only more people around here had better taste with their 150's...

thanks! i wanted some different wheels but now that they are mounted I really like it. looks stock yet, not. i didnt want a really aggressive tire though, i think it would look good with one, but ive got the ranger for aggressive tires.
