It is going to look gorgeous, I was worried you would do a color that would clash. You have such a great fashion sense

Same thing as far as I am concerned. Are you going to get curb feelers to protect these wheels?

Looks good. A lot better than my Cutting up the mud flap mod. Sad

Between the bumper and the tires, it looks like you have doubled your ground clearance in the rear.

How are you liking the MTR's. If I got to 35's they are what I will have to get, I don't know why Discount doesn't carry the KM2's in that size anymore. They did a month ago

I'm liking them a lot. At first, I thought they were loud. But that was immediately after install, where I was used to the silence of the Falkens. Now they actually seem pretty quiet when I compare to what the KM2 and STT sounded like.

The only complaint is that they seem to flat spot a bit, and are a bit wobbly for the first few miles. I'll bring them back to DT to have them rebalance them though, now that I've got some miles on them.

Really can't wait to get them off road.....

I really like the new Bumper, and new shoe & wheels! What size did you go with and how are you liking them?

315/75/16. So far, on road they're very good. Not much noise (deafening compared to the Falkens, but that ain't a fair comparo). Haven't had them off road yet, so can't say anything about that yet. Won't know where they will rub till I can get it on some rocks. Street rubbing is only on the frame and UCA's at full turn.
