Got new tires.

The TrXus were great while they lasted. I got tired of not being able to balance them and what have you. Bought a set of BFG All Terrains 305x70x16. Had them installed with the whites out. Here's a pic or two. Wheels are still dirty, haven't gotten that far to clean them yet.

Oh yeah, these tires ARE SO QUIET!!!. I only hear my exhaust now rofl. I miss my trxus hum. But this is def a nice ride.







You like???

They are great tires in my experience. I'm sure you'll like 'em. They look great. Although it must be the 16" wheels, because they sure look odd for ~33" tires! Must be because everyone and their brother (myself included) has 31x10.5's mounted on 15" rims.. The eye just gets used to seeing those proportions..

That looks pretty good, are they smaller then the ones you had before or is it just the tread that that makes them look smaller.

They are actually about an inch taller than the ones I previously had. They are also slightly thinner, but it's is almost unnoticable.

good job they are GREAT tires. I also went from a mudder to these tires and it took a while to get used to no humming. but really when your on the freeway you dont have to turn up the radio as loud and kill your ears haha.Also these should last you well over 50000++ I have 10000 on mine and they have hardly warn. and yes these tires ROCK in the snow I love them all my trucks will have them for the remaining years i live up north.

Yes, I do get some rubbing on the lower valance. Only on a hard turn in reverse so far. I might do a little trimming. We'll see how it gets.

Get Bleachwhite or however you spell it. I sprayed it on my wet tires, let it sit 15 seconds scrubbed it and the tires we're immaculate.
