    It not cheep the lug nuts you will need are about $2.00 for one, and the caps for them are about $1.00 for one, plus the center caps about $10.00 for one. That's about $140.00 with tax. You need to cut about 1.5 inches off the back of the center cap and remove one of the feet. To cut the hole in the centers I used a mill and just made the hole to fit over the hub..

    I found a place on ebay selling goodyear wranger extremes for 600 a set:thumb: , so i grabbed them, would have liked something more aggressive, but the truck spends more time on the streets than off and i couldn't beat the price.:crazy:

    Buy them with tires. I got a set with BFG's for $400. Mounted/balanced and ready to go.

    was trying to do that, but kept finding people that wanted 800 bucks with used rubber, what i ended up doing cost me 840 with shipping, but the tires are new, i just was nervous that somebody's idea of 75% tread would end up being 40% after i paid to get them shipped. call me parinoid:screwy: luckily, mounting and balancing is free, cause i have after hours access to my buddy's shop

    That's not bad for 4 wheels and tires. The tires would have cost you more than that.

    that's what i thought, tires were almost 300 each locally, and i drive by the sellers warehouse about twice a week, so its only a minor PITA to pick them up

    Keep your eyes open here and on PBB, the tires are sold by people that go bigger.
