New Tires and Wheels

Well guys, last week I bought some used nitto trail grapplers with only 500 miles off of craigslist for 700 bucks. Went Friday morning to have them put on my stock wheels and find out the previous owner had cracked one of the stock rims on the truck.... it had been welded and the weld had broken and it cracked more making the wheel nothing more than a paperweight. The cheapest used wheel i could find was 550$. needless to say i looked for other options. The shop where i was offered me a set of eagle alloy wheels that were new but had been sitting around the shop for a while for a hundred bucks a piece and they got to keep my used tires. Considering I had to have the truck for travel I took the offer. Made it out the door with a new set of 20's and tires mounted and balance for 500 bucks. Needless to say I am very pleased with the deal and wanted some opinions. I put a pair of 2 inch leveling spacers on the truck today. Here are some pics Let me know what ya'll think.



This was taken right after I put on the leveling spacers.

Looks awesome dude. Any more pics? Let us know how the chrome holds up. Ive been thinkin about going chrome for the wheels but dont want the pitting crap. Eagles are made in USA so was curious if they hold up better than the China crap over time.

Very nice Matt. With the 2" lift did you do anything with the trac bar or radius arms. If not does it handle the same as before? Thanks!
