New Tires on today

General Grabber AT2's were delivered this morning, headed over to get them put on this afternoon. 245/70/17 (decided on this size so it fits the spare well without the hitch mod)

Once these are on, Plasti-dip time!

Re: New Tires on today

Got my new meats on tonight. As I researched, my speedometer is only 3mph off. They look great, as soon as I get some extra coin, I'll do the rough country 2" lift or maybe just getting the OME springs? I already have bilstein's all the way around as well as RC spacers.

Problem with the spare though, they couldn't get the spare off. Apparently I am missing a couple of parts for the spare tire kit. Anyone know where I can get an extra other than going to a dealer?

Once I get the spare situated, i'm going to plasti-dip the rims as well as the grill.

Re: New Tires on today

Here's a couple of pics.

Anyone know where I can get a replacement spare tire kit?

Re: New Tires on today

Apparently I am missing the lug wrench for my spare tire kit. WFT!?!? Glad I found this out this way rather than on the side of a road somewhere. I just need to purchase a lug wrench.

hit a nearby scrapyard and grab one from any truck if you really want one on the cheap. although I can't imagine that a lug wrench is very expensive.

Re: New Tires on today

The lug wrenches are cheap, but I need the lug wrench that can attache to the other jack tools to lower the spare. Only the dealer has that. I've been to pep boys, AA parts, and they don't have anything that can lower the spare, apparently its a square bolt.
