    17\'s are ordered

    They are backordered and will be here next fri. 17x9 8 on 6.5 with a 4.25 back spacing. Then I will throw the 37's on and finish up the 60 and put it in. Then I will play. Mwuuuuuaaahhhhhhhh hahahahaha. (sorry i got a little excited.

    We repainted the truck again this time one color w/ doors. It is hunter green metallic. Flat black wheels ( i love flat black) all the chassis and drivetrain is flat black. The bumpers and cage will also be flat black. I also got mr art carr shifter in so I will no longer have to get under my truck to shift gears (that was a pain in the ass) The exhaust gets put on tommorrow morning (2.5 inch duals with dual flowmaster single chamber 40 series and 45 degree dumps right after the mufflers. A cross over pipe right after the case before the muffs.) I hopefully will have pics soon. There is a cruise for a local car club that I am going on 7 slammed rides and one other lifted truck. I am goood friends with the guy that started it so I said I would go. They are good guys. They just installed thier lift kits upside down /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif


    A question Why did MTRs change the tread pattern between a 35 and a 37. 35's have 2 lugs inbetween the side lugs. On 37's this is one lug. Does any body know why?? or even what I am talking about

    That is a 17" 37 issue. They are a load range E tire and need a stiffer tread design.

    Is that bad? Why do they need to change the load range

    It isn't bad. It is actually a bonus. The 17's have a thicker sidewall. You just have to go to a lower pressure for them to squat. They are a bit heavier also, but it isn't that big of an issue. The only thing that bugs me about them is when they are half worn the 2 center blocks become one and the tires move around a bit in wet conditions. You can groove them and sipe them to combat this so don't worry. I wouldn't trade my MTR's for any other tire. I am thinking about the 40's when my 37's ware out.

    I have already grooved them. This is when I really notice this. I am also thinking 40's when these 37's are no more. That or a nice set of krawlers.
