hmm... I am kinda leaning towards the teflon chambers also.... not 100% sure yet. Lets here some more opinions.
As for tires, I am gonna stick with the 31's I just bought. They are Goodyear Fortera Silent Armors.
I wish I had some 32" ATs, but I just laid money on those cause they are practical, so yeah...it's what I got

alright, so I went to the *NEW 4WP store in Raleigh* I also won a set of Hellas! IT WAS AWESOME!!!
Anyway, while I was there I looked at wheels, and they saw nothing as 'hubcentric'. so any wheel I got would have to be lug centric. Is that what all you guys run?? I thought it would have to stay hub centric...no?

Teflon chambers or the 1079. Both would look killer.
