Uh oh...

I went down in tire! Well i found another steal of a deal on tires in town and i rolled on them for my new MPG/get power back combo. I'm also gonna sell my 35's to someone for soe money too. I used my 15x10 Alum. rims ive had for a while and put them on the truck. Picked up the tires for 250! And thats for 5 that are damn near new..they still have nobies on them. I needed tires and the weight i saved and smaller tire size the truck has much better get up and go/efficiency. Looks a bit weird but its what I'm gona rock till i get all my swap stuff and then i can sell them for cash. And I'm picking up a street bike soon to be my daily to work etc vehicle. gona save alot of money with the gas i wont spend about every 2 days on my truck. So hopefully it should help me get more things that i want/need. Dont hate, its a change for me too lol

yeah it boots good now. got more planned soon for the motor though. The 35" xterrains plus the steel rims is a heavy combo for being under geared

I like them, they are soft. i make black marks everywhere on my driveway just barely gasing it. The hook up good on the street, dry dirt, and in the rain. havnt tried mud yet
