New wheels + tires

Tires 275/60R17 TOYO PROXES ST II
Wheels




Took the 2" block out of the rear. May not look it but the front and rear measure 34" to top of the wheel well.

Love the way it handles on the highway. The most off roading I'll be doing is to the country dump.

I like the rims. But the tires belong on cars. Proxes shouldn't be put on trucks. But hey you like it.

Nice lookin rig you got there too.

Like the look of your truck. Ditch those step-up's and the mud flaps and you're good to go.

I am with Tre, the rims are great but the tires do belong on a car or a lowered truck.

Looks good buddy.

Wife uses the step-up. The tires are for SUV's and cars. I drive it like a SUV. I got it because I liked the 4 doors. Easy to get the dog in back when the wife comes with us. Sold a 2006 Corvette and got this. This economy makes us do things we don't want to.

The truck is not confused. It likes the attention and all the replacement parts I've put in. She and I have had many conversations. I will say the dog does listen better.

Looks good, did you have any issues with the center caps on the front not being big enough and hitting the dust caps?
