new tires are on! (pics)

4 235/85R16 Mounted balanced for $139.50 per tire.
BFG T/A KO, that is the best price i could find anywhere. Total = $558
I was going to get mudders but, there isn't any mud in Las Vegas, only sand and clay.

Consumer Reports says that the best A/T out there is the Nitto Terra Grappler,
I was tempted to get them, but the BFG were the better price, and I would have to go with 265/75 for the Nitto

I believe it goes Treadwith/Sidewall Ratio then Rim Diameter(SP).

so 235/75R15 = 235MM Across, 75% of that is the Sidewall, then the Diameter(sp)

I have about 5 turns on the T-bars. There is about half of the bolt left to crank so i think i should be fine.
