Icon10 Finally bought tires and ball joints

whats up guys man i finally bought tires.... i think buying tires is the most difficult thing in the world haha.. couldnt decide what size or kind to go with, i wanted a 305/75/16 but ended up with a 285/75. looks great and the 305's would have rubed like crazy until i got new bars. i ended going with the Toyo MT. pricey but ive read alot of great things about the tire any of you guys heard much about them. i didnt want an at but the new toyo open country AT II is a great looking tire. almost got it. ill add pics tomorrow. i also got new ball joints mine were shot and it rides soooo much better now...

Do you have wheel spacers up front? I have the same wheels and BFG A/Ts in 285 on mine and yours seem to sit out of the wheel wells farther than mine.
