Time for some change!

The BFGs I have on the truck now have about 5k left on them with a considerable amount of Dry rot so since I'm headed for Texas in January I couldn't pass up this deal on these "like new" All-terrains I got off my buddy whose truck broke down for good. So I figured its the perfect time for some new wheels that will fit better to the width of these tires than the 15x7s I've been rockin since 07'. I also painted my flares and bumpers(about time) and added some bushwacker bed caps.

Here are some pics:




The wheels are U.S Weel 94 Series 15x8 with 33x12.50R15 BFGs

Sorry, I really am a pic ***** ha.
Summit only had 3 in stock(go figure) so the 4th should be here Tuesday and my buddy is going to mount and balance them next Sunday. I'll get a pic when there on, can't wait!

Thanks guys! Forgot to ask what would look better white letters in or out?? I'm a huge fan of white letter out but with the black accents on the wheels I'm not sure now.

I'm a white letter out kind of guy too, but I would probably put them in with those wheels. Your dog was sure hamming it up in those pictures too. LOL

No just a BL. My leaf springs basically have no arch in them anymore and my Tbars are starting to sag just a bit so with those things fixed and the new tires it could sit another inch higher actually.
