New Tires/New Look!!!

well i have had the ol' BFG Mud Terrain KM's for over 3 years and 45,000 miles so i figured it was time for a change. Sold them to a buddy for $300 with well over 1/4" tread left

The Replacements: 33x13.50x15 Nitto Mud Grapplers

I absolutely love these tires, love the look, and love the ROAR!!!
