Talking Pics of the new wheels and rubber on Jeep

Finally put the new wheels and rubber on the Jeep.
The wheels are Mickey Thompson Sidebiters 17 x 9 and the tires are Goodyear Wrangler Duratracs 285/70R17.

The tires are pretty quiet on the road and the ride is good so I am very happy with my choice.

Very nice!

Where did you get them from? I'm thinking about getting the same rubber, and similar wheels.

Also, if you don't mind me asking... How much that set you back?

Oh! And how much lift do you have?

Steve-o I purchased the wheels form a local tire shop for $155 a piece and the tires were $289 out the door mounted and everything.

Steve-o forgot one thing. I am running completely stock as far as lifts go.
@ESP123 the Mickey Thompsons have 4.5" of back spacing so everything is running good so far, but I have not taken it off road yet.
@Wheelinzy your JEEP looks awesome.
@JDsDream how long have you been running the Duratracs and what pressures are you running them at?
