Like a dream!
I wanted to test them out....so like a goofball I drove through my front yard with 13 inches of snow.....No problem AT ALL for these tires.

They are still $94.00 a piece on tire rack....and worth every penny.

Do you have wheel spacers? If not, it looks really good. I don't like the wide look.

Thank you Jesus

Nope I didn't want to go with wheel spacers.
It just has the RR 2.25" lift and I did have to trim the ball joint stud up to the threads to make room for the larger lugs on the tires.

So far no rubbing has been noticed.

RR 2.25 and 255/75/R17 questions

Pics look great, it is what I am leaning towards as well.
Did your MPG and MPH accuracy change much? Did you use adn spacers?
I think I have decided to replace shocks, since I am at 60k already.... what did you do?

And since its been about a month, any rubbing issues?
I am really considering these tires, but am worried about the BFG's in the rain and I can get Bridgestone dueler at 265/70/17 for $10 more. Thanks

Nice that looks just like mine but I have the BFG MT. Unfortunately I do not have a pic. One question for you, Did you change the struts and if so, what did you use?
