New tires and wheels...hopefuly these will last

Got some new wheels and tires today. American Racing polished Baja's and some bareley used 33x12.50 Bridgestone Dueler M/Ts. The wheels were new off Ebay. $650 all together. I'm gunna leave them on till I get the 4" lift in the spring and then get some 35's.

Also did the Warn premiums and soon to come the K&N FIPK and a Hypertech chip [img]images/graemlins/40BEER.gif[/img]

I hope they don't strike again but if they do I hope you put that camera in so you can catch them this time. [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img]

Why do you say that? Everyone I have talked to says they have noticed a difference with them.

Re: New tires and wheels...hopefuly these will last

I must say again that this is all IMHO:

The people that say they have noticed a difference were expecting a difference and felt what they wanted. You cannot really tell the difference in 2 horse power unless you are on the track and have something like the clock to measure.

The kit does little except open up the breather a bit but it makes the thing breath more of the engine air which is hotter and negates the extra breathing.

I like the replacement filters. No work for installing, better breathing of fresh air, cheaper, but it does take away from the bling factor to say I have a FIPK....
