    I just picked up my tires that I bought from FWP today. Now I just gotta get some rims.
    Here they are 5 37x12.5x15 MTRs :D

    And here is what they are waiting to go on.

    If any thought "Hey can you fit 5 37x12.5 tires in the back of a K5 and still use the Rear seat?" Here's your answer. :eek1:

    It was not easy to get the gate shut and it was even harder to get it back open.

    The tires had the seat pushed forward on the latch and I could not "squeeze" the tires enough and unload the force on the passenger side latch of the tailgate soooo.......

    I pried the seat folding latch over with a hammer and jerked on the seat back to get it to release and fold down. That released the pressure on the gate and it popped right open just like normal. Getting them in it took myself and Fred (FWP) one on each side of the gate to get it shut. Kinda drawn out. I guess I coulda sed I folded the seat up and opened the gate. As usual with these rigs that is easier said than done. :D
