    I've heard good things about these tires from some of my buds...
    so I thought I'd pick-up a set for my tow/recovery rig.

    Here's some pics. :D :D

    They're 16x10 US wheel wagons...
    I'm not really impressed with them...check-out ALL the wates.

    I'll hopefully have it on the road soon...I'll let you know. :D

    Looks sweet! And the paint came out nice!!!!! The pics look good, but it looks incredible in person... Did you finish rubbing out the rest of the truck?

    Man, they shoudl've put those weights on the inside. :(

    I've always loved that body style in a 1 ton!

    I don't think it's all on the wheels............my Trxus MT's took a lot of weight also and they are on the very true factory forged alloys.

    Hummm....
    My buddy that installed them...said...he even broke the bead and turned the tire...on the wheel...and he got almost the same results.

    He commented on US wheels....almost always need alot of weight to balance.

    Well...hopefully it rides nice on the road. ;)

    the tires are made by interco, which usually take about 10lbs of weight per wheel anyway.im sure the US wheels arent helping tho.
