New Rubbers for the Ranger and Lights in the Grill

Got my tires mounted this weekend. 32x11.5xR15 BFG All Terrains. Got them for $400 with at least 75% on them. I got them mounted Saturday with an alignment since I replaced my ball joints. Also since I had free time I mounted some lights behind the grill since I have had them for at least 3 years. Finally got a chance to wash it. Here are some quick pictures. I'll try and get some better ones later on. Let me know what ya think.

Thanks guys. Ya, they are 10 inches wide. Looks a lot better than the 31's. I think the truck rides a little better now. I don't know if that's because of the tires or what. For anyone wanting to have the same tire wheel and lift combo, I had to take my front mud flaps off. They would rub when I turned. I'm leaving the rear ones on for now until I know its not gonna snow anymore.

I was getting kinda bored of the Ranger before but I have fallen in love all over again with it. I think the stance is perfect personally.

^You got it. Got the powerdome at the junkyard for less than $50. Couldn't pass it up. I need to paint the hood and grill surround at some point when I have the extra cash to do so.

It's stance looks awesome, and sounds like you got the tires for a pretty good price. I'm jealous.

I know. It kills the looks. I am always looking for something '01 and newer locally. No luck on craigslist or at the junkyard.

Thank ya. When I compared the 31's to the 32's there wasn't much of a difference but on the truck it looks so much better.

Looks great. The tires look exactly like the used ones that I bought. I got over 2 years out of them before I sold them with about another season left on them. Great deal for $400. I bought mine on a set of AR Chevy rims for the same price, then sold the Chevy rims for $100, and then bought a set of Bajas for $150. Just sold the Bajas with the tires for $400. So I ran them for over 2 years for $50.

Anyone know what psi these tires should be at? The shop said 45 psi but that seems way to much.

I ran my 31's at 32 psi and it wore the centers out.
