Well, a forced decision was made today at work. The sidewall split on one of the 37s on the truck and went flat. Luckily I was already at work and parked (drive about 65 miles one way).
No fixing b/c of the sidewall so I took the tire and wheel off and got a ride to National Tire and Wheel in Wheeling WV. Priced a nice set of 37x12.50r18s (just tires) and for the heck of it, a whole new set of wheels and tires.
I ended up with a whole new set. Pro comp 17x9s (similar to MT Classic IIs) and 35x12.50r17 Nitto Trail Grapplers, lugs, center caps, mounted/balanced, all for about $130 more than just new 37s.
About a half hr of getting them mounted/balanced and back to the ROW we went. Changed all four out in the sticks on the ROW in 4F temps. The sun was out so it was actually nice.
I like these even better than the 18s. This is def the prime set up for an OBS I would say now after actually seeing em on the truck.
National Tire and Wheel in Wheeling WV is awesome. Great prices and they have pretty much anything you could want in stock (they have huge warehouse). Being in a bind and the quick walk in service with no excuses of previous appointments, blah blah blah, was awesome.
