I ran them and liked them. Quiet enough and decent on the road. Not good with ice.

I'm not very brand loyal. I like the ls platform for its simplicity and ruggedness. But I prefer ford axles and run a dodge transfer caseish thing. And have a random picture.

Those Tactik wheels look really familiar.

kluttsy01 Yesterday I fixed my fuel gauge (broken wire infront of fuel tank) fixed my oil pressure gauge (had to change the sending unit for a gauge style cluster in place of a dummy light) new front pads, and an oil change. Then just got a new set of wheels ordered that should get here just in time for the lift to be done.

Luke95 I run a 13.5 on 8 widescreen and run them at like 4.5 to 6 psi. I have taped the beads and just send it.

I did an Ebay search for simulated beadlocks and went with the best (cheapest) deal. I had the same wheels in 8" on my 05' TJ. Pro Comp wheels. I got my XJ steel wheels at Quadratec for $39.95 each last year. I went with black satin instead of my usual gloss black.

Tire shops around here wouldn't ever mount them (liability issue). My new 8" wheels on my XJ were only $160 (4) with the center caps.
