New wheels and meats

Woke up this morning and decided it was finally time to pull the trigger on getting some new tires and wheels. I browsed Discount Tire's website and decided on what I wanted. Went into Discount and talked them down a few hundred from the original price and also manged to get a 100 dollar mail in rebate. Oh, and they also gave me new lug nuts for free.

I went with the MB 72's...15x8 with -19mms offset. I'm real happy with the decision.

Tires wise I went with 33x12.50 Goodyear Duratracs. I was leaning towards BFG AT's on my way there, considering i've had two sets on my Bronco and love them. But I decided to change it up a bit with the Duratracs.

Anyway, on to the pics. Sorry about the crappy quality cell pics. My camera batteries are dead.

Don't mind the lack of gap guards. They'll be going on soon. Along with new exhaust.

A few next to LordofWar's BLed 02.

Like I said, looks real sick. They are an awsome looking tire.

For size comparison, I have 295/75/16 that are a little over half way worn. I think Jame's t-bars are cranked a little more than mine and he sits about .5 inches higher then I do.

Here are some pics that I took.

Looks awesome james! I think some of the 06+ flares on there would really add to its beefiness.

Looks good! You won't regret picking the Duratracs over the BFGs.
