Rims on my Burb were warped from heat. The guy I bought the truck from pulled a big camper with it. It only had 72k on it when I bought it but most of that was with a 31ft Airstream behind it. It's been to Cali three times with that camper.

Could not get it to run smooth. Guy at the tire shop spun one on the ballancer and showed me how bad they were. So I been wheel shoping. Those are Eagle 058's. www.rim-zone.com has them for $375 special and that with caps, lugs and shipping. I printed that out and made my local 4Wheel parts match it. Had to take a stand but the finnal agreed. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

Wow Grim that makes all the difference. I got my 589s from him as well. Excellent to deal with.

Oops I see you didnt actually get them from Rim Zone. Either way they are awesome wheels.

Ohhh you don't know how much of an improvement that was. They were so out that they trashed the idler arm. The rearwould get oscolating and bounce the 14.

Nice 'burb Grim! Now it looks REALLY nice! So how ong bufor a 6" lift & 35's??

[/ QUOTE ]

Never. The IFS rides like hell when lifted. Might put some load bags in the rear but need to make a decision about how to do that and not disrupt the Brake adjustement valve and throw off the brake bias.
