Wheels Installed with PICS!!

I finally got back to my AS and got the new wheels and tires installed. I had to flip the shocks after the axle install and I painted the frame with some undercoating. I did have to get some new "tuner" lugs the stock ones were to large to fit in the lug holes.

I got these:

Aluminum Trailer Wheel Style: SERIES #04 Size: 15 x 6 Bolt Pattern: 6 x 5.5 Bore Size: 4.25 Load Rating: 2830 lbs @ 80 PSI Offset: 0mm

They have a couple other styles. I went with these becuase it matches my truck wheels better. I also put Goodyear Marathon tires on I got from e-bay $345 for 4 shipping 225/75/15. They fit perfect!!

Rivet Nice Wheels

Those really look great! They are my favorite of the ones offered. You didnít get the stainless caps and lug nuts from that source?

Hmm, just got my tax return. Six would be, oh never mind. Iíll just pay off my credit card balance.

WOW!! Those are nice. Congrats!! Now you know what this means? More trips to break them in and more rallies to show them off. Dang it, hate it when that happens.

Thanks! She still isn't quite ready yet. Now I'm fixin' leaks and old weatherstripping!! Does it ever end??? I didn't get the center caps and used some "chrome" paint in the hub centers and used all "locking" lugs from local AutoZone. The converted fried another radio also. I have a new one I need to install that.
