tires finally

just got a set of toyo open country at in 265/75/16 and cranked the tbars about 2/3s up, it leveled great and the ride is so much better than the stock setup on my 2002 wranglers. I will get pics up here in a bit. Best part is, the tires new, all the labor, and tbar job, plus an allignments was 570 including tax. I couldnt be happier

a local shop here in des moines, They kinda specialize in the stuff. Most guys there are into nothing less than 20 inch wheels with 35-40 inch tires though, i have the mini me out of the group. I did see a set of terra grapplers in 285/75/16 that wouldnt be a whole lot more though. I got the pics, i just need to find the cable to connect to me computer

i searched pretty good when i was shopping for the tires for pics to compare, and found very few that gave me the idea, so if u need some additional pics that are not from my deck, let me know and i can easily take more

Yeah i have been doing the same. I am going to stick with the grabber at2 tires from treadepot.com as they are the cheapest and only $9 shipping per tire is the cheapest anywhere.

Rotate often, and re-balance. They will never balance right if you wait too long. Truck looks good! Btw....

Not a bad looking tire, but i am not a big fan of them. I think my boss has them on his F-150 and they ride rough way to rough.
