Got some new shoes for the ole Ranger!!

What do you guys think? 265/75R16 BFGoodrich Mud Terrians!! I also painted my wheels with that Dupli-Color wheel paint. I used scotch-brite pads to scuff up the clearcoat, sprayed 2 coats of primer and followed that up with 3 coats of this wheel paint. I think I did a good job, no runs!!

Yea more pics of the wheels! Everything looks good. Have you considered a body lift to give you a little more room?
