yep
i told you that you would love 'em.


i liked them enough to get 2 more to replace the bald ones instead of getting a whole set of used MTRs for the same price

pics later, these things are like 2" taller than the bald ones were

Yeah matt it was your truck that gave me the idea to get the MTZ's, and some other kid at my college with a lifted f250 who has mtz's too, haha. Yeah for sure I want to see the new 35s, take a pic of them next to the bald ones.

Yeah mine next to my **** worn out A/ts were like an inch and a half or so bigger, those things were almost bald. My truck looks like it sits alot higher now for sure, not to mention looks 100x better.

Thanks for the comments guys.

yea, i ran them wayyy too long. its not 'how much' its balanced.. its that you have to add that much weight in places to get it balanced, and now running 65 is more enjoyable... and thats in ounces, so i have about a half a pound of weight on that wheel lol

i had Classic IIs when i had the IFS, but the axles i have now area bigger pattern, and i was being as cheap as possible so i got steelies.

When i get some money, i want a second set of tires for playing, and those will go on the steelies, and i'll get a nice set of wheels for the MTZs.

i didn't.. walmart origionaly put the tires on the steelies, and put the white walls out.. then i had the 2 rear wheels replaced with the right bolt pattern and decided to keep them out instead of paying to get all 4 dismounted and turned around..

then today i only replaced 2 tires and didn't want to deal with dismounting and swapping the tires around
those things get heavy!

i think the blue will come off with some soap and water, the lube for the tire machine was making it run.
