I really think you should save your money towards a new set of tires. I think they detract greatly. The wheels, altho not my favorite in the least, are really clean and shiny. The tires? Dirty and they have an ugly tread pattern with a really blank sidewall.

i wouldnt have to save to buy new tires, but i don't want to take tires off my truck that have 7,000 miles on them just to let them sit and rot in my backyard.....get my drift
