Polished wheels suck to keep clean, just so you know. What size tire do you want to run?

either a 31 or 32but no larger im definitly getting BFG AT KOs, im thinking since im going down to a 15" wheel from a 16", then maby i should go up to a 32" tire or whatever the equiv. of a 265 tire is. (currently running stock tire size of 255/70R16 on a 16x7. )

i dont plan on lifting or cranking torsion bars any, so what would be best? I know the LIIs come with the 31x10.50s on 15x7s. They have a nice stance. so as you can see i dk what to go with in tire size or which wheels....

well, this might help your decision, the polished MT 2's are a pain in the *** to keep shining. if you live anywhere where in the winter they put salt down for ice/snow. youll have to clean your rims like every two weeks so the salt doesnt destroy the finish.

and here are the MT 2's on my truck.

i like a girl right now as i keep changing my mind as to what i want to get, first it was laptop, then wheels, but now fellas, i have come to a FINAL decision. instead of a wheel mod, ive going with a JON BOAT mod!!! ive been wanting one since before wheels or anything else. I fish ALOT and always have to borrow someone else's jon boat. Sooooo, ive decided to try and find a 14' flat bottom jon boat (aluminum) on a trailer for around $600.

So far, its been hard bc every one that i find, has a gas motor, depthfinder, trolling motor, etc attached, which jacks the price WAY up! I just want to find a boat and trailer! i have a battery, and 50lbs thrust trolling motor! all i need is a boat, trailer, and battery!

As of the moment ive found plenty with gas motors going for $900-$1200. ive called a few people to sell them w/o motor and some said no, or some still wanted way too much. i juist recieved an email from someone who MAY sell me just boat and trailer! cant wait to find out!

I know i may get flamed for the decision, but a jon boat would serve me best right now!
