new tires

well. time came for new tires. and since they came out i wanted the wrangler duratracs.. so here they are.. 265/75-16s. i cranked my bars to so the truck sits level and im pretty pleased with it right now till i decide i wanna actually pull the trigger on the lift. but i had to replace a bent upper control arm and a new balljoint and new rotors and pads before i got ready for tires, so im stalling on the lift because im sick of spending money on this truck. it only has 42,000 on it. anyways onto the pics

dont mind the rims, theyre all pitted and disgusting from brake dust, im on my 3rd set of pads and second set of rotors, and just general maine crappy winters. oh well planning on painting them anyways.. but next on my list is probably tint, and some hids maybe. or some headers.. who knows at this point.

You should consider them as a all season tire. They ride nice and are quiet enough and wear forever.


Truck looks real nice man, I wouldn't touch it. Most I would do would get some wheel spacers to stick them tires out closer to the flares. Those tires just set off any truck.

What caused that? So early in your trucks life?

And the tires look great.
