First I want to thank everyone on this site. All of you guys have been such a great help and I was able to search for hours and days to find exactly what I wanted. My girlfriend is probably happier than I am that I got some wheels and tires being that I was looking at them EVERY night before we went to bed.
I bought my 2011 Tundra double cab 4.6 about 4 months ago and absolutely love it. I did not want to go with a 5.7 due to the miles that I have to drive to work and saving a little gas if possible. Although I am not 100% sure what my gas mileage is now with the wheels and tires.
I first got the Supreme Suspensions 3/1 leveling kit from eBay which worked perfect. The kit came with everything I needed and fit like a glove. Not a complaint with the product at all. Plus, I saved about 150.00 from the other comparable kits.
I then ordered 295/70/18 Nittro Trail Grapplers from Discount Tire Direct. I was in love with the tire from first site and loved the look. I also ordered the MB TKO wheels (+25 offset) from Discount Tire Direct as well. With many months of searching around for tires and wheels I did not want the typical XD series wheels so I went with these. Discount Tire Direct gave me a great deal with this setup and had them to me in 4 days!
Now the problems started, the first wheel that I opened from the box had a scratch on the lip. I also noticed that the lug nuts that were supposed to be black are chrome. I called Discount Tire Direct right away and explained my situation. They sent me 25.00 back on to my card, sent out the black lug nuts and sent me 4 chaos wheel caps for free that I was going to order anyway.
I put the wheels on, did the typical relocation of the front fender plastics so that I would not have any rub and I left the front mud flaps in place. I only get a slight rub when wheels are at full lock of the drivers side. I am going to borrow my buddies heat gun and push back that section so that it will not rub. I instantly gained comments from EVERYONE, felt like a totally different but with the same great ride quality.
When I received the new lugs in the mail they were black although the caps were not even close to right. They were for like a 15" wheel. I called Discount Tire again and they said that they are sending me the correct ones which should be here tomorrow. I will keep you guys posted on that.
All in all I have had some problems with Discount Tire Direct but they have always fired back with a solution right away. Everyone makes mistakes.
Here are some pics of my truck now, I have tinted the tails, BHLM, and plasti-dipped the side steps, bumpers and front grill. Let me know what you guys think and I am thinking side flares next... Any suggestions?
**Does anyone have the same tire size any know their gas mileage? My speedo is off so I dont know if mine is right**
