Icon10 Got new tires and rims.

Picked up a set of 4, used BFG AT's and 15in aluminum whhels last night for $350. the tires are in great shape.... Lots of tread left...

their 32x11.5x15

definitely bigger than my 265x70x16's

Wheels need some good cleaning however..

I think what he's saying is he bought wheels with a bolt pattern of 5x5.5. You need 5x4.5 bud.

what i think you are trying to say is that the wheel is not "hub-centric". hardly any aftermarket wheels are hub-centric like the factory one was. if the wheel fits on the lug studs, you can use them and the tapered lug nuts will center the wheel. Malydeen will try to sell you hub centric washers to make the wheels hub centric but they are not needed. i have the same wheels and the center hole is alot bigger than the center of the hub. put em on and run em

That sucks, I drove 2 hours once to get a set of rims advertised as 5x4.5 but they were actually 4.75 so I know the feeling
