    Got these today. Teflon coated ( I will always get this if they are available ). Tire Rack...They are great to deal with IMO.

    I still can't believe how clean you've kept that truck.

    Thanks much.

    Thank you, it's been a good truck.

    ATX "Ledge" 16"

    Yeah, I've had many sets on various trucks over the years. I think they are a good year round tread and I've always liked the raised solid white letters. They make these rims for duallys so I may put this same tire and rim combo on my dump truck as well. Gotta save up a little snow money.

    Have the same rims, best rim I've ever had. 3 years on salt truck and no peeling, chipping, flaking or anything. Also had BFG's. Far from my favorite tire, rotate often!

    Teflon is great for snow removal and salting vehicles...and cooking.

    Thank you.

    Thank you. It's a 98' with 143k on it. Original paint, new door skins( they had rusted through on the bottom ), a little paint peeling on the bottom behind the rear tires which you can't see. Overall still good.

    Not a flake! Just did some last minute prepping. Maybe an inch tomorrow night. It might be cold enough that ice might not manage it though. Maybe a push! But I doubt it.

    You should see the inside of this truck!

    I'm sorry I was wrong: Backspacing is 4.45" and offset is 00mm.

    Backspacing explained very simply is how much space there is behind the mount surface.

    In this photo the first rim diagram is of a very shallow rim like the one above and the second diagram is a very deep rim like you'd see on a drag racer.
