Decided to throw my new wheels and tires on

So an update from this thread:

New tire time, Toyo AT II on PYO's

I had bought a set of tires and wheels for the spring, BUT got the truck back from the body shop and had to put them on.

I had the rockers refinished from a ton of chips and surface rust after 137k miles. Also had the moldings removed and the mirrors, grille and handles color matched. Came out stellar.





Had the lower rockers applied with chip guard to save them for a while.




So with the unseasonably warm weather I thought I would throw the new tires and wheels on. Figure I can roll on them for a few weeks and then throw them back on a pallet for winter storage before the snow flies.

18" x 9" XD Hoss Black and Machined 4.5" backspace
33" x 12/5" x 18" Toyo Open Country MT

The total bill was just short of $3000 for it all, I will have to look at the break down.

Thanks to all, pretty proud of it after having it for 100k miles, I thought it deserved a refreshing.
