struck gold!

I think I might of hit the jack pot! I finally found some tires to trade for my 33s....They're 36x15.5x15 mickey thompson mtzs with 60-70% tread and a brand new full size spare and matching rim. The rims are 15x15 polished bullet holes. The guy wants to do a straight up trade for my 5 bfgs. I have little doubt that they are going to rub somewhere just cause of the shear width of them but my plan is to find some 15x10 rims to mount them on so they tuck a little better. Im probably meeting up with the guy mid-week!!

haha I expect they will. But I figure they're worth alot more than my tires so if its not costing me anything but 1 hr of my time might as well. I can always sell them and get tires that fit

These things are massive!! but it was such a good deal I couldnt pass it up. I definitely wanna find some narrower rims though. The spare looks good. Its a mickey thompson classic II either 15x10 or 15x12...not really sure. Im probably gonna find three more to match it and sell the 15x15s. You think I could I tuck a 15x10 in there or is that pushing it too much??

...anyway here are some pics:

haha i think it looks so dumb but it was an offer no sane person could pass up. Im currently in negotiations to get some 15x10 black D windows this week sometime so hopefully I wont have to drive around looking like an idiot for too much long. the rims on there now are valued at $320 a piece brand new so im super stoked about selling those! I'll finally be able to get my tuner and regear!!!
