    Funny, I saw the houses & tree's and thought NJ, then I looked at your location and laughed. NJ just has that certain image it projects. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Hey, just an idea, but, IF your going to order new tires AND rims, Why not step down to 15's. The safety bead on the rims will help you from losing tires at low PSI's.

    That, and they are a little cheaper!!

    They're not a little cheaper. They're a LOT cheaper.

    Be prepared to grind though. Four hours on mine, and that was with two grinders at once!

    4 - 16.5x12 Monster Black Rims
    Lug nuts, center caps, mounted, balanced, equal (free so oh well)

    should all be here in 7 days...

    oh yeah they are giving me a free t-shirt

    I also told the dude to checkout our website..... they beat Tyre internationals price.. Tyre was cheaper on the tires at $309 each as 4wheel was at $357 each.... but Tyre said it would be 2 weeks as 4wheel parts matched the price and they have it ALL IN STOCK!!!!

    here is what I have to say about 4 wheel parts..
    out of 5 I give them

    that was to get a 7'9" truck into a 7' garage door opening......

    I would love to have beadlocks if they made a street legal beadlock that was also not billions of dollars...

    every tire place i called said... that there is no legal beadlocks except hummer beadlocks and the wife doesnt like them..... /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif
