My 2002 XLT has new rims

I bought some rims for my 2002 XLT, they are American Racing Outlaw II in 15" size. The problem with my old rims is the dealer installed P215/75R15 instead of P225/70R15, the P215s were too narrow. The steel was starting to rust and it seemed that I couldn't get the plastic caps clean enough.

After:


What do you guys think?

I like those rims on your truck.

When you get some bigger tires they will look great.

Yeah, I am going to get a different size later on, I just have to wear these Kumhos down. I bet it won't take too long, these tires are not the best.

No, they are Kumho Solus KR21. They aren't much of a truck tire, but they do roll and have lots of tred left. I think they are supposed to go to 80,000 miles but they won't last that long. I have always liked Goodyear or Firestone myself.

I've always been a huge fan of those wheels. I'm actually currently looking for a 15x10 set of them. They look great man.

The factory ones look worse in person. The plastic is all pitted and nasty and the rims are rusting. I have the factorys on Craigslist for $50 and I am wondering if I should just sell the centers and scrap the rest. They roll nice, but they are ugly.

They look great on there and will look even better with some new tires.

Chrome + Green = FTW!

I finally did it!





They are P225/75R15 and fit the wheel wheel very nicely. These LTX tires are night and day better then the Kumhos (as they should be!).
