Tires and Rims on! pics!

Took me about 3-4 hours to put these tires on by hand because it was so damn cold outside and I had to heat up all the lugs and kept stoping for stupid things..Anyways took it for a spin and everything seems great. Alignment seems good. All torqued and ready to go. Crappy pics because it was dark I'll post some better ones tomorrow or something. I think this truck looks so much better now it actually feels like a truck!

Mickey thompson baja MTZ.

Nope none at all they fit great.. Body lift is next! :-) but that will wait until the spring because it is too damn cold out to be ripping bolts out now. It's crazy how just even 1 inch tire difference makes the truck look so much higher. Actually It was probably more than an inch because my other crap A/t's were really worn down.

Whats that? I was thinking about throwing the rear mud flaps back on it for the winter. I probably wont do too much offroading with it, well actually I can't because the snow is coming. But yeah I might throw the rear flaps back on for the winter to protect it. I usually keep this truck pretty damn clean. I wash and take care of it quite a bit.

Thanks guys! I love this wheel and tire combo but now that I think of it I would have picked the mickey thompson classic lock wheels over these but i'm just as happy with these I love these wheels. I think it looks great too.

sick man yeah you bought the mickey thompson MTZ's too correct? I love my 31s now so sweet I can't imagine 35's must look huge. Yeah should I pop the rear flaps back in even though they look retarded? I want to protect it as much as possible. I love the mickey thompson baja claws too, those were my other choice.

Tomorrow! I hate how its so damn dark so early now I started working on this thing at about 3 o clock thinking I would be done around 5ish. I finished around 7 lol plus its so cold outside. Can't do anything late anymore outside oh well I can look forward to spring. I'll get some pics tomorrow morning when you can actually see outside.

iced over mud holes, those are fun
i got busted by the po-lice when i was trying to get out of one, your tires don't grip the edges of the ice too well

Yeah if they break its fun for sure haha I dont feel like washin it to clean her though once its all muddy its a PITA takes forever. but worth it it hasn't rained here either for a while so I wonder if there are even puddles left in the woods and trails. I think I might have to do some exploring tomorrow lol, test these bad boys out.

Why would the po-lice care? Where you in a hole or on snowbank? lol sucks man yeah not to many things grips on ice well :(

I'm debating on what I should do with the stock rims and whats left of the A/T's
