they can put your old tps sensors in aftermarket wheels.
Maybe I read this wrong, but if you are going to keep the OEM wheels and tires on for winter .... why buy now?luvbelly said:... and I'll be at the tire store tomorrow getting a quote for a BFG AT KO. I am thinking a little bigger but nothing crazy. If I remember right they do a 285-65-18. Now I have to decide....stock rims or aftermarket? I hate the extra money an extra set of tps's are gonna add to the price if I go aftermarket. I say a second set as I would probably keep the OEM set up for winter. So I guess that will be round 2 of mods, what the heck will be in round 3.....I need some overtime!!!:eek2:
That is the argument for putting them on the OE rim. I know they would be better in the snow than my good for a years, past experience has shown me that. There is only 13,000 miles on the GY's, so they would be "good enough" for winter use for a while. When things get to greasy I do have a 4X4. As for buying them now if I go with an aftermarket rim, your wright again, but I plan to keep this truck a while and storage isn't an issue so I may just do this all at once. It's like pulling off a band-aid.NorCal 4x4 said:Maybe I read this wrong, but if you are going to keep the OEM wheels and tires on for winter .... why buy now?
Also, the BFG KOs would be much better than the OEM for winter, so if you get them, use them, and run your aging tires when it is dry and snow free.
Excellent point. You'll get way more enjoyment from a suspension upgrade.loufish said:I'll share my humble opinon...Keep the factory wheels for now, and spend that money on the suspension...If you need the most bang for your buck, for the price of some wheels you can get a set of 2" Radflos up frt and a set of DR's in the rear...Your suggested tire size is fine, good for power, good for milage and plenty of tire for off-road/snow.
The suspension upgrades will "enhance" your driveing every single minute you're behind the wheel, while the wheels look best at rest...Think about it!
P.S. I walk it like I talk it...The wheels I want are about 1200-1300 clams, but I went with the suspension mods first!
