new tires on the mazda

Needed some new tires pretty bad. So I went ahead and went a little bigger.
235/75/15 Didn't want to go to big and kill my mpg, but these look pretty good on the truck I think. Also did a little PS for some wheels.

Ultra rogue its what I had on the blue 4x. I have no reason to get rid of either trucks. Besides I am about to pick up something for the wife to use here this week. So all my bases are covered. I have a play truck and a DD. Only reason I got rid of the explorer is because of the crappy MPG and it was about to need some major engine work.

Why do you want to lower the Mazda and lift the 98?

Paint is 98% perfect as well as the body on the mazda. 2.3L lowered = amazing mpgs. So it is pretty much ideal for a show truck. 98's paint is far from perfect and I have plenty of lifting options for it as is. The leaf springs I got to replaces the non-existent leafs can actually lift the truck 5" from stock. All I would need is spindles up front to lift it.

Nothing is set in stone though. Just pondering my options. I do like the look of the 98 and I could eventually get it painted.
