Very nice! They look good seeing them on the truck vs just seeing a single tire picture. As you can see, I opted for the Yoko's. Install for everything is on Monday so we'll see how it goes. Thanks for the pics!

I don't think you'll be disappointed in your decision. The ones you chose will look just fine on your rig and within specs for a factory 8" rim width.

Thanks, I think it will be fine as well. It all depends what people like I guess. I like a nice narrow look with some height.

I found a pricing error on Walmart's website so Discount tire had to credit me the difference with their price guarantee. I got them for $161 each. So whoever said that I got the wrong tires? I didn't, Lol!!
Even if they wouldn't look ideal, I paid peanuts for them so I would just buy something else and keep them as spares. Can't beat that deal on that type of tire. Needless to say the Discount tire people weren't thrilled and they even had to call corporate to verify and approve the credit. They had to credit me $341 for the price difference + $312 for the KO2 exchange. These were made in Japan and they have a 2 month old manufacturer date. They really are a beautiful tire and like I said, they measure bigger than other brands so I think in the end they will look great. I'm more than happy! Here are some pics:

I’m starting to think they’re all starting to look alike, all with side gripping added. The KO2’s, Ridge Grapplers, Geolanders etc etc

Yep, I agree. Minor changes per brand I guess so they don't infringe on their intellectual rights. But they are very alike overall.

Sent from Above[/quote]Nope! Monday is my install appointment for everything. Lift, shocks & suspension. It will be there for 2 days. Only thing I've installed so far is the MBRP catback which I did on Saturday.
