New Shoes on the way!

I'm so excited! Today I will upgrade my jeep from 31 inch tires to 33x12.50's! I also oredered some black pro comp rims, model 8060. The Tires are Goodyear wrangler Duratracs, i've heard a lot of good things about these so I decided to go with 'em. I will post pics after I install but for the time being here are before pics and then I'll show the after...

I second that. I would get another set of Duratracs in a second but they don't make them in 32's. I don't want to go up to a larger size so I'm looking at what BFG has to offer.

What? Why don't they make duratracs in 32"? That was my plan for the tax return... Is this true?

Thats what I thought, and on day two I wanted bigger tires! Hopefully I can keep the bug away until the 33's wear down. Can't see wasting a new set of tires, or selling them for pennies on the dollar.

Looks great! Yeah it's the best feeling to pull up to the tire shop and see your baby out front wearing her new shoes, and she looks so grown up.....

Where'd you order those from? That's the exact setup I'm looking into!

Tonneau Covers, Lift Kits, Winches, Leveling Kits, Tires, Wheels & Tonneau Cover Truck Parts by 4 Wheel Parts-RH3

One of their distribution plants is in OHIO so it would get super quick to you, mine came from the Florida distribution, they sent it out Saturday, got it Tuesday, and right now they have rebates goin on , if you order say 1500 worth you get like a 150 dollar gift card for their store.

Here is the rebate page...http://www.4wheelparts.com/specials/go-big.aspx

Ok, my tire shop did it for free..... well, the difference in price between them and online was like $20, and free rotations, local road hazard was worth that $20 to me...

^^^ Hey that's a good deal there! I searched forever at tire shops around here and no one could get me the wheel/tire combo I wanted at a good price, most places wanted 220 per tire on the duratracs, or didn't even have the tire at all, found all I needed for my price range at 4 wheel parts, my new fav. store!!!
