Those look great for the price.

This truck is my main... actually only vehicle right now. I drive it to Cincy at least twice a month, about 100 mi each way. I also need it for wood and to use around the farm. It's getting double duty but with 206k on the odometer it can't last much longer. Indiana is retarded and I' m having a hard time getting my other cars registered.

I don't have much experence with new tires, I've only ever bought 2 sets new, one was a set of swampers ( I assume thats more tire than you want  Cheesy), and a set of maxxis buckshots, mounted, balenced and out the door was about $600 on the buckshots. The maxxis big horns are in the same price range, and look a little better IMO. As far as an all terrain I like the BFG AT's, but I'd guess they would be pricey to buy new though


my cheapo wheels came in today

If I can get my 'burb licensed and running better I'd love to have straight mudders. Right now I'm driving it too much for that. Everything is still snowed in except the truck. I can't wait for warm weather.

That only looks right down here if the air ride is fucked up like a lot of Lincolns and the bumper is dragging the ground.

I think they look good off the truck. I'd try it with all 4 or at least 2 on one side before swapping them. They may grow on you if the stance is different with them all on. Ya never know.

I think I'm going to order spacers, maybe an inch or so in the front, and about 2 in the back since the rear is narrower anyway, I'll have to messure it up to make sure. I don't want to put them on it and run them tucked in and looking dorky like the wheels on my wifes '86

finally got the wheels on, 1" spacer in front, 2" in back. I didn't want to go more than 2" so the back tucks a half inch per side, but its not as noticeable as the 1.5" stock
