Caution: Large Pictures Loading...

Mickey Thompson Baja STZ - 265/75 R16
Pro Comp Xtreme Alloys Series 7089 - 16x8





Picked em up from Summit last night. I'll have to head back there later. The new black lug nuts I got were too large. Correct thread, but they were 13/16. The holes for the lug nuts are too small to accept anything bigger than the 3/4 socket on my lug wrench.
I can upload more detailed pictures of the tire tread later, if anyone is interested. The tires I took off were BFG All-Terrain T/A, 30x9.5 on stock steelies. Switching to bigger tires but the alloy wheels, it doesn't feel like I gained any weight. That's just from how they feel in my hands, I didn't put them on a scale.

Looks good. One of the main reasons I went to this size was weight to size ratio. Mine is a daily driver that i commute 60+ miles a day. With this combo it was about the same weight as the stock set up. The handling is better and so is my gas mileage. Good luck with your new set up.

Told my girl I just had to forget her, Rather buy me a new cartburettor,
So she made tracks sayin' ths is the end now, Cars don't talk back they're just four wheeled friends now
