New wheels and tires have arrived!

First of all, I ordered these from Discount Tire (DiscountTireDirect.com).

I originally ordered the Vision Warrior 375 wheels and Hancook DynaPro ATM RF10 tires.
They called me and basically said they're out of that tire and it would be a while to get it (on backorder). After some discussion, the customer rep said he could get me the heavier duty version of the tire (I ordered the passenger type originally, since it was $30 cheaper than the light truck version).

He knocked the price of the tires down a little ($5 per tire) and took the price off completely for the road force balancing (that I had ordered anyway). So it was still more expensive than what I had originally ordered, but what should have been a $120 increase came to be a $60 increase (plus, it all shipped out that same night and arrived 2 days later. Did I mention shipping is free? :) ).

So, kudos to Discount Tire!

Now on to a few pictures. :)

Before:


After:







Not that I didn't like the old ones, but I think the tires had some issues and wouldn't balance right (I bought the truck used with 145k on it, so I have no idea what they've been up to). Figured if I'm replacing them, I may as well replace the wheels while I'm at it! Also went to 16 inch up from the original 15.

Load Ranger is not the same as Load Index

Load Ranger is a letter. A, B, C, D, E

A, B is passenger vehicles

C, D is SUVs and Light/Midsize Trucks. D is what most the guys on here run for A/Ts and M/Ts, I believe C is what Rangers are recommended to have.

E is for larger trucks like 2500s and 250s, and some 150/1500s depending on what you use it for

Ah, gotcha. D, then!
"LT265/70R16D2 110R W" - more letters than I'm used to. :P

Not sure yet. For now I threw them in the garage for "just-in-case". I'll probably look at selling them or something later on.
