New Shoes

I had my blowout awhile back - hit a piece of metal and it ate my damn rig up when she blew. To make myself feel better I went out and bought rims and tires.
Being a Texan I had to go with the Rockstars - even with the comments on them cracking. I spoke with them and the warranty on 'em took care of my concerns. I put on.......hell I'll have to go back and look up the exact size but they're 33.4" - whatever that amounts to on 18's. She looks like a whole new rig and being a Jeep guy I LOVE the out of the fender look.
Here are some pics:







And for those of you who missed my blow out:

Thanks guys - and Chris I took that pic after I'd already taken my foot and bent it back. It was facing forward after the blowout. I cut it off just around my spare tire, that's how fugged up it was. My tip was trashed as well.
