F150 Test Tires

I just did my level kit, 2.5 inch and 33's Cooper STT's last week. I had to test them and make sure they are ready for winter.

Thanks

You can trade for it in 3 years over here in Medford, Or. That is when my lease is up....

It has been a good truck.

Truck looks good. Those are the same size tires I'll be putting on mine, I just can't decide between BFG A/Ts or BFG KM2s. There is only a $12 difference between the two but I also want a tire that will last for a long time and not make too much noise on the street.

Mods... all i did was level kit and tires.. 30,000 mile tire.. my lease is up and should only have 36,000 miles on it...

These were the same price as the cooper all terrain model.. So i went with more tire for the same price. They do 'hum' down the road.. More than i like... But, just turn the radio up.. Personaly.. I would go with the BFG All Terrain's.

I was 4k in the whole... I bought an 05 ranger, BASE model, traded that in, lost 1k... Then i stepped up to a 06 ranger.. everything but 4wd traded that in after 5 months... lost 3k on that... Well i wanted a 4x4, so i went to buy an 08 ranger.. and talkin with Sales they said, if i lease a F150, since they lease good.. 6 months ago.. That when my lease is up.. I can turn it back to Ford and i will be clean.. I will break even...

Its hard to hold on to one truck when i work at a dealer... and since we have a Ford store.. man.. i was always on the web page lookin at trucks.

Nice truck! I just traded my Ranger in on an F150 FX2 screw cab. Couldn't be happier and I got an amazing deal and they gave me 6750 for my Ranger!

Hey your truck looks so nice with those tires. Do you have any pictures from the side up close and head on. Also did you just get the spacer when I went to a shop to get mine leveled out they said that it is only a 1.5" spacer which makes me think it will still be lower in the front or a 2" spacer and add aleaf to level it out so I am a little confused. Anyway looks sick

You want to see what part of the tire? I can get pics up tomorrow.. I bought a 2.5" levelin kit. It sits PERFECT with the *** end. All it is, is, a metal 'spacer' that bolts right on top of the strut.. and then call it a day.
