    I know it's been done a million times....but not by me!! :D I put my new 35" BFG M/T's on Chevy option rims with Staun Beadlockers (hence the two valves) on my '78 at the weekend. Had a fair bit of fender trimming to do but, though hard work, came out good. I'm going to cut away the lower rear quarters behind the rear wheels as it runs pretty close and is full of rot anyway! :crazy:

    If you mean in the second pic, that's just grey primer showing where I folded the fender back so I had no sharp edge. Beadlockers cost £100 each here. About $180 I think! Bead locks would cost me a lot more by the time I shipped them over from the States and these lock both beads anyways!

    If you want a little advice, remove the two points you have created. They both pointed at your new tires. Either use a grinder to smooth them out or a hammer to fold them over. I folded all mine with a hammer. Even if you don't catch a tire with them, you are likely to catch yourself. Other than that, it looks good. That is one of the coolest camo jobs I've seen.

    Thanks for the advice. They're not as severe as they look on the finished photos. Plenty of clearance and hand friendly!!!
