Got some new meats for the BKO yesterday.

I bought these off of a member on fullsizebronco.com who has his own garage. He pulled off my old stock tires, then mounted and balanced the new tires all for $300, couldn't beat the deal. There's roughly 60% of the tread left on the tires. From the pics I saw, and what he said, these handle great in the mud and on the sand, which is just what I need for Wharton.

I'm going to sand down the rims and paint them a color pretty close to what they are now (minus the rust) and pop em on as soon as I finish the lift.

(I managed to fit all 4 stock tires in a row even in my flareside bed)

I either smudged my lense or was shaking with excitement for the last 3 pics, you decide. Just don't stare at the blurred photos too long, its not 3D, nothing's going to pop out at you.

(3 of these tires equal about the same width of 4 stock tires)

He said they wore down pretty good. I'll be alternating between those and my 31" A/T's. So I'm not too worried about the wear.

Doesn't matter, its cheap and I don't like all the rust so I'm gonna paint em.

I am lifting it with a Skyjacker 6" Stage 2 lift. I've got a progress thread going: https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ighlight=winks
