new wheels, the wheels that came with the 33's were bent. So i drove 15min down the street to summit and got some D-window cragars.

back to black! woo!

and they dont stick out nearly as much now. and these ones are 15x8 instead of the 15x10's that the wheels came on.

I had them put the weights on the inside. It took a ton of them to get mine balanced.

Sadly that is how a bunch of off road tires are. i have a crapload of sticky weights on the inside of my wheels to get them balanced. Just shoot some black paint on over. kinda cover the tire, slide some cardboard under the weights and go.

What happened to the old wheels??

Looks better to me. Those are a 13.5 wide tire right? Are they rounded at all?

which ones? lol

the silver ones i just got?

they were bent to **** i guess, so i thew em away.

the soft 8's, well i sold those just last night. if they were a 15" wheel, i would still have them, but i could not find any tires for 16" wheels. not used at least. and tires are cheaper for 15's.

Do you still have the Y spoke wheels? I may be getting a set of 33s for 16's from a friend of mine. So i may be in the market for 16s here really really soon.
