Just got the call!!

Just got the call from DT that my new Black Rock Vipers have arrived and are ready to be mounted up! Now I have to wait ALL DAY. Not sure how I'm gonna deal with that! Will post some pics later if I can figure out how to do that!

Went with the 15s with Duratrac 33s. Should look pretty good. Went with the Tungsten color. Couldn't do black wheels on my black Jeep! I have the TF leveling kit as well so it should look pretty decent. We'll see!

No Wolf, not sweeps but I couldn't post a crappy cell phone pic. Wouldn't do those rims justice. And kjeeper, I know I suck but I can say with 100% certainty that the 15's DO clear the brakes. Had to walk out in the shop when I saw the guys open the rims. When 3 guys gathered around the front end I felt like I had to go reassure them! Awesome stuff.

Yep, PM'd you but had to see it for myself! Appreciate the advice too. I can't go with the 35's b/c of my kids among other reasons but they would look awesome! Your rig is looking good too! I'll get some better pics tomorrow. Has change the look of my Jeep a ton. It's nice being different, like you said!

As promised, here are the pictures. Very pleased with the outcome...not so pleased these shots are in my driveway as opposed to some Jimbox landscape setting!
Thanks to Kbwolf, Kjeeper, MTH, ESP and many others for the sound advice. I'm sure I'll bug you guys for the next round of mods!
Blackrock Vipers 15' in Tungston with Duratrac 33s. They clear the brakes just fine, don't rub anything and are pretty quite for such a beefy tire.

From the side...

Nice Arse!
Attachment 100741

I know, I know "Stubby that bumper!"
Attachment 100742

Looking down at the tire. Pretty wide but I think it looks great!
