    Locally, a guy offerred me 4 wheels/tires plus 2 new tires for $600. The wheels are steel 15x10" 8 lug. Mounted and balanced on them are 37x12.50x16 Super Swamper TSL Radials with 50% tread. They are also all beadlocked. He is also including 2 of the same tires only they are brand new and un mounted. Is this package worth spending $600 on? To install these on my K5, I am going to have to cut the fenders plus it is a major stretch putting these on my front 10 bolt. He also offerred to sell me a set of 4 unmounted and used TSL's (non radial) size 38.5 for $300.

    Yeah if they are true beadlocks thats not a bad deal for six tires and a set of beadlocks. Just make sure they aren't those crappy streetlocks. And 300 for the 38's isn't bad if they have decent tread..........I wish I was closer I'd do it.

    Sorry, yes I mistyped. Both are 16" tires/wheels. I am just trying to figure out if I need to do a body lift or just all out fender trim to get em to fit. I am going from 35"s to 37"s.

    if you wheel your rig hard enough a 3in body lift will need trimming also, just get the 37s and get a good clean cut on the sheetmetal :D
