New shoes and wheels :)

Finally got em with some Pro Comp series 52 flat black wheel with 3.75" bs wrapped in a 32x11.5x15 Falken Wildpeak A/T. They are actaully extremely quite on the road and hopefully get to do some wheelin this week. I also sprayed my flares and front valence with some Rustoleum bedliner in a can and turned out amazing. Now the pics








and here is what the texture of the Rustoleum looks like.

DO IT! you wont regret it or atleast i havent but they have only been on for 48 hrs ha. But make sure you get an adhesion promoter to help it stick to the plastic

Those are flat black? Look shiny to me. You should let us know how the Falkens are doing in a few thousand miles, I was torn between those and the BFGs the last time I bought tires.

I love that Rustoleum spray-on bedliner stuff--I always have a can around. I use it on everything. It's great if you're making brackets of any kind-especially underhood stuff.
The texture is "just right" and it looks really nice.
Oh---and it looks great on your truck too!

I def will let you guys know how they do. Yea i really wanted some bfgs but these were much cheaper and i read a couple great articles on em.

And Mike I completely agree with the texture. Now would i use it in the bed of my truck? Probably not because i don't think its rough enough for the bed. But the bigger kit might be different especially if you get a sprayer you use with an air compressor

Update:

Went out and tested the tires today and they did pretty damn well. Even when they were packed full of clay and dirt theyd still grip. Very excited about how well they performed. Oh and in pics they dont look beefy but they really do in person :)
