New Tires and Wheels!

Finally got my tires and wheels installed. The tires were temporarily unavailable in my area so I had to wait a little bit, but here they are!
They are 295/70R17 Toyo M/Ts on 17X9 XD Addicts. The toyos are extremely quiet compared to the KM2's (which is the only other mud terrain I have experience with) and measure just over 33" when mounted on the Jeep. I havent felt hardly any loss of power (suprisingly) and, in fact, it seems to handle hills better than before as it shifts more readily. I'm going to go and talk to the tire shop tomorrow to see if they did anything, like flashed the computer or something. Anyways, I also installed a Teraflex Leveling Kit with sway bars, extended brake lines, and shock extensions this weekend before the tires came in. Its a night and day difference from before, love it!

Nice looking rims! Always been a fan of the black rims on a red jeep.
