hey everyone, just got my new wheels installed. 17X9 Eagle alloy series 101. i know what you are going to say, i need bigger tires. i know and im trying to decided what i want, may go with dune grapplers. also going to paint the inside of the front and rear rotors black.

P.S. dont know why two of the pics got cut off, but get the idea.

well i knew someone was going to say something to that effect. you see im a really impatient person and i just want to black everything out so driving around with the stocks on there or even painting them black wasnt gonna fly. tires will come soon, we all cant blow a couple grand in one shot.

Looking good bro, wheres the center covers for the wheels?? Did those come with them? Post up a pic of the tires you think you are going to go with. Some Mud Grapplers (like jasonmotox had at the meet) would look sweet on there. IMO.

thanks Molson, its slowly but surely getting there.

they did come with the centercaps, but im not sure if im going to put em on.
1. not sure i like how far they stick out
2. they need to be powdercoated black if they do go on.
heres a pic of the tires im thinking about i dig the flame tread, although i may just end up getting a set of BFG all terrains or mud terrains

those dune grapplers are really sweet! saw a set on the beach last weekend. A little out of my price range for the time being:eeeek:

i have the caps, but they are chrome. so i may powdercoat them back. more than likely im going to just paint over the rust. im not to big a fan of centers anyways.

im still trying to hear how the dune grapplers perform on the street. anyone know if they wear out fast? im saving my nickels and dimes now for some rubber, which is why im rollin the stocks for now.

Nice wheels. A quick shot of flat black spray paint on those hubs would have certainly helped though!! I'd go w/o centers.

I think some 33" BFG A/T's with the white lettering facing out would look good. IMO

HAHA man i couldnt handle doing that. the onl time i really wash it is if it gets muddy (which isnt to often) or when my moms church youth group has a car wash to raise money for a trip or something.

I performed an experiment. I washed my truck 50 times this summer. It rained within 6 hours about 42/50 times. I realized that somehow there is a direct relationship b/w my truck being clean and the meteorologists to be drunk that entire week and read the forecast wrong. From now on i just spray it off and then drive really fast for a few miles a couple times a week.

now thats the way to do it! the only difference with me being i dont need to have a reason to drive fast. cruising on 1-4 at 2am doing 110 is so nice.
