About effing time.

So I could finally stop complaining, I came across a deal I couldn't pass up, and treated myself to the wheels/tires I've always wanted. I know alot of yall aren't going to like them, and are going to tell me the tires look like rubber bands, but this is the setup I've always wanted to run, and I found them at a complete steal, so i jumped on them with a quickness.

24x12 XD Rockstar's in chrome.
37x13.50x24 Toyo Open Country MT's

Some crappy cell phone pics for now, next weekend the truck will be lifted 2" higher up front, and 3" higher in the rear, for a total of 9" up front, 8" rear, and I'm working on an 05 front and maybe a new paintjob (depending on what my insurance company says about some things), I really want a darker OEM blue that comes on the 05+'s, like the true blue or something, with no two-tone.

Other mods to come this year: 190cc injectors, 5% tint, 08 mirrors, 08 tailgate (if she gets repainted). That's it for now, onto the crappy pics.

These aren't going nowhere, I've always wanted a set of these, with the toyos over the 38 kumhos because of how long they last. You wouldn't believe how great it rides either. Very very happy with the truck right now, will look even better once it's got the 2" higher front/3" higher rear

There's no way it could be lowered down, with the wide wheels, it already rubs just a tiny tiny bit. It sits very un-level right now, it's 3" higher in the front than the back, so I figure with 2" up front and 3" in the rear, it'll evel it out a little more, and give me that extra little bit of gap for that big bump when turning full lock and no rubbing.

The guy I got them from had them on a truck with 11.5" of lift, and had 2" spacers on them and my god did it look amazing. he wanted to run a 40x22 so I ordered him 22x12 rockstars in black for these, and we traded.
