Thanks!
As far as i know you can just buy them through Canadian Tire stores. They don't even have them on the goodyear or goodyear canada websites.

Honestly dude, I liked other wheels better. I've never been a fan of the Alcoas. They are better in the gray color.

^^ I liked my old wheels too, but wanted something different and they sucked in winter because they were always plugged up with snow and ice. I picked these up for a good deal and tires for 15's are allot cheaper so I went for it. I am going to lift it next year possibly so I did not want to spend much money on a new set of wheels if i am going to need something bigger again next year. Then I will get some 33's on 17's.

Too funny, I just seen a CT flyer and those are on sale. Buy 1 get the second at half off, so basically buy 3 get 1 free. I think they are $195 reg price..........in Canadian funny money.

They do look real good though.

thanks!
here's what it sounded like when it was new. Its a little louder now that it's broken in. Having the cat's cut out soon too because one is making some noise (at least i think its the cat). I will get another vid of how it sounds in the next few days when i get a chance.

Tires look great, I've been thinking about getting a set of these, but ended up having to get a new fuel filter neck and tail lights before I can spend any more modding monies haha.

Looks good.
I know it's only been a couple of days, but how you like the tires so far? Have you had a chance to drive in the rain? If so, how do they handle? Just curious because I was thinking of buying a set of these as well.

So far I have not even made it off dry pavement! but they seem okay on the road, and on the highway, i don't really have anything to compare them to because I have never driven anything with an offroad tire on it before. I was prepared for the pavement ride quality to be worse so basically what im judging it from. I will do a tire review for it when I get a chance to try it in the mud, dirt, rain, snow, etc!

truck looks good...

an alberta meet wouldn't be a bad idea! i'm speaking from the red deer area.

we'd probably have to go out to the rocky area for any good, legal wheeling...

i haven't wheeled my truck yet, only the required stuff, nothing recreational.

i need new tires, and i've got set of alcoas waiting in the basement!
