Took the Mazda to the Lake, new 265/75/16's

Hey Everyone,

Heres some updated pics of my truck, with 265/75/16's and Tbar crank. (Lift shackles are going in later this week.)

Testing the tires out a bit!




Front Profile


And the Lake!


The truck rides real nice on the bigger rubber, and they bite really hard compared to the factory junk tires. They are Nokian's ( a high end tire for the rednecks that have never heard of them, LOL) and are Hakka Siped, which will be great for all the snow and ice we get up north here.
In the spring im planning to throw on some 285/75/16 BFG M/T's
Now I just want to go a little higher .. maybe a 1" BL....

Thanks guys,

i cant say it was the exact look i was hoping for, but its starting to grow on me. Im planning to get the white letters reversed to the inside, and im thinking it will look a bit better with the shackles in later this week

Nice, much better than factor rubber. Shackles will make it perfect.

I'm jealous of the fact that you don't need a front plate lol. Truck looks great, even if they aren't up to date pics
