New Wheeeeeeellsss!!!!!!!!

So I have been looking at wheels forever, but i finally found a deal i couldn't pass up on CL - Polished Eagle Alloy 186 new in the box, 15x8, 3.25 BS !!! I was siked for the good price too. the BS on my 7 inchers has been Killing my truck... BTW The truck doesn't tilt back, its from the weight in the bed.

AFTER



A few pics to see the new BS... don't mind the dirt, we have a drought, so i don't washer her --poor thing

Man that looks killer! How much you end up getting those wheels for? This whole drought thing sucks, my truck is so incredibly dirty. But once I get back up to App it will be covered in salt, woo hoo! Need to get some bigger tires on thing!

looks sweet, what are the tires in the bed for?

they look kinda big.

you should put your stock center caps on, it looks soo much better.
photobucket is being lame so i put it on myspace.

thanks man. I got the wheels for $320. I hear ya Trent, i haven't washed my truck since the whole drought thing started, and it is getting ridiculous. I am trying not to do it out of principle though.
about tires...the swampers in the back are 32s, but they are just for thrashing around, and I just got some really good 31s, so I am tryin to take advantage of them since they are new

daniel, the tsl's are 32s for playin around, i got them very used for $100 and put them on my factory wheels.
I really like the center caps like yours, but I have center caps that are star shaped because I have the expo wheels, so for now i am naked in that aspect

Thanks for all the compliments guys.
Yeah, I was a little confused about the tires too. They are TSL RADIALS, and 32s, but they are 11.50....I looked online and could NOT find 32x1150 TSL Radials..... so....what gives? Are they just real old and they stopped making them.
But yeah, they sure do look alot bigger than that don't they? I will gets some pics next time I go home.

{Yeah, I am gonna break soon and wash it}

they make ssr's in 32x11.5 if you dont mind i'd like to see a shot of the sidewall.....they look to have the exact sidewall styling of the ssr and not the tsl from the pics above....could just be me though.

Damn, I guess we got some other students around here? Yea, I am studying Mechanical engineering.... loads of fun. Like the thermo homework I am not doing right now...

Good call Justin, these pics are in Lake Park. I don't live there, but a friend with a camera did.... so yeah
How did you know? Well, the tires are at home, that's why I can't get a pic with them yet :(
