New tires and a nice day

We have had a nice run of some good weather and I finally bit the bullet and bought new tires. got a great deal from Discount Direct on a set of 285/75R16 BFG A/Ts.

Heres some pics from exploring some access roads around town.

I am stock height with a t-bar crank to level out. I had to remove the front mud flaps, but other then that they fit great, I get a little tiny rub at full lock on the sway bar, and if I flex to the bump stops I get a little rub in the rear.

if by just shy you mean $250 shy and then a few bucks to mount and balance not a bad price in my book but still a chunk of change.

Snow yes, ice no and we have lots of ice. I would have had to sipe them and still they don't grip as well on the sheet ice we have around here. Thats what made me go ATs again.

Meh they were more expensive and don't last as long, I have never had an issue with my BFGs so I plan to stick with them.

Good looking truck...Glad you stuck the RWL's out. Those 285's look like they fill the wheel wells right up. Put up a side shot if you get a chance.
