    I have those exact same tires myself. They're decent... but they SU-HUCK in the snow (not that you'd have to worry about that in Texas) :)

    Got the wheels from summt, That sucks about the tire and wheel, The wheel can probable be beat back to shape though.

    That rim can probably be salvaged. Most of the rims on my K5 are in way worse shape then that with rockrash and dents and they all hold air just fine.

    Cegusman: Keep in mind that with those tires and lockers you just moved into D60 breakage range. Those tires with a heavy foot in hard terrain can eat 30 spline stubs like nobody's business.

    Nice wheels, those are gonna look sharp painted black. I didnt know you could mount a 14.50 tire on 8 wide wheels. I thought they had to be at least 10 wide. This is awesome
