Tires make all the difference

This was a morale booster for me. Tires cost me $125, Wheels cost me $50, and mounting cost me another $50. I don't think it's too bad a setup for $225.

Damn, what the [bleep] happened to your BRONCO!? I leave for a couple of months and I can't even recognize your BRONCO. What brand and size are those bad boys?

Re: Tires make all the difference

They're 38x12.50s TSL SXs on 16.5x 9.75s. They are pretty well worn but it is a popular size so I should be able to acquire a stash. I've also put a D60 up front on stock rear leaves with highsteer and a 14 bolt in the back. I still have a bunch to do but at least it's finally on 4 tires again.

Re: Tires make all the difference

38's! you look like there's enough room for 44's!!! Nice work. I just got my 34-9.5-15 LTB's from 4wheel, gonna try to get them on this weekend, but I have to work [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]. I don't even know if they'll fit with my 2" lift but if not I may get that 4" kit off of you if you still have it.

Re: Tires make all the difference

44's is the end goal. The 4" kit is long gone.

Re: Tires make all the difference

Norm if you don't like them I'll take em off your hands for $225 [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Those 38's would look darn nice on my rig... I am sure I could make room for em hehe. Where did you get such a deal on tires and wheels??? I am stuck with crappy 16.5 stock steel rims and everyone around here wants $100 for a set of stock steel 16" wheels that are equaly crappy to mine. Can't find 16.5 tires around here anywhere. I've got a descent set of radial 265s ats but obviously cant put them on 16.5 wheels. I guess I am going to have to brake down and buy a set out new waggon wheels or somthing one of these days.

Re: Tires make all the difference

Norm it would look so much better if you coudl drop down to a 15" rim. Those 16.5s just dont look right. Its like they fill it out to much or soemthing.
