Old girl got new shoes

My tires have needed replacing for sometime now. So I finally broke down an put new ones on. I figured I might as well go bigger to to fill out the wheel wells. So I went with some 285/75/17 Toyo Open Country AT II. They measure at 33.8" so basically a 34" tire on the stock rim. I like them so far but don't have many miles on them yet. Anyways here are some pics because why not?

Been running same tire, same size for a couple thousand miles now. Replaced Terra Grapplers in the same size. Toyos are a little noisier, lost a little mileage, definitely a more aggressive tread, hopefully last longer, got about 37k miles with the Nittos.

BTW, did you paint your wheels, or do they just need to be cleaned really bad? LOL

Haha both. I plasti dipped them and they are dirty. I also replaced Tera grapplers but they were stock size. I didn't get good mileage out of them but then again they would spin easy lol.
