New tires!! plus the new wheels I bought!

Woohooo!!! Just got my tires in! only took 3 days they came really fast anyways here they are! Mickey thompson baja MTZ's 31's next to my new rims and my truck, will be mounting shortly. About $1200 later and worth every penny. Enjoy.








Gonna look goofy without the body lift but thats my next project for this truck. I'll be running the 31's and new rims without it for a bit.. I really wonder if I had bought 33's if they would have fit on the stock suspension.. doesn't look like they would in the pics.. oh well I love the new 31's.

goodbye all terrains!

Got in trouble and lost my licence for 30 days from back befor I graduated high school, I rode a motorcycle, my dads drz400, I took it out one day while he wasn't home. yeah I felt like a d!ck after .. without a licence and got caught in my high school parking lot for it.. yeah not the best decision I have made, but I learned my lesson and no one got hurt including me so I guess it worked out good!

But besides that how often should I rotate these tires to get the maximum life out of them? I heard do it every 3000, I don't do much offroading either so I think these will last me a good long time!

Yes, every 3,000 would be best. 30 Days?? Damn, that has to suck.

Judging by the pics I think you are going to have to trim the front valence or they will rub. 33's would definitely not fit with out a lift.

Yeah will do man, I think they will be fine, yeah now I deffinatly know I couldn't run 33's stock, there was another member on here I think his name is FRXLT , anyways he bought some bfg 33's ATs and his CLEARLY wouldn't fit stock. Hell trent ran his 32's well with a t-bar crank, I think the 31's will fit fine for now I will check it out tomorrow again. I'm not planning on keeping it like this for long i will be body lifting it in about another month.. Going to get these bad boys and the rims mounted up sometime this weekend or next week. thanks for the comments guys! I will get some more pics as soon as they're mounted I can't wait!

Yeah don't know what i think thinking when I typed that. I think i ment to say 32's. Even the 31's are looking a little bit big. I will just take off the valance for the time being if it rubs. Body lift is coming soon anyways.

Yeah I don't do "too" much offroading I do some every now and then so I'm curious as to how these tires will perform. Yeah there all mounted and balenced gonna pick them up this afternoon and put them on the truck when I get home

35's matt? What did you get another set of tires or somthing? That should be sick.
