New Wheels and Tires (First Post)

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**

Nice looking truck! I really dig the whole look, especially the bumpers.

I think it looks great without tacked on fender flares. The balance is nice!

Also, hey luc.who from Lancaster! I'll keep an eye out for your truck.

Awesome looking truck! I really dig those wheels. With 295/70/18 I would expect the tires to stick out more. Here is mine with 18mm offset (only 7 mm difference) with stock tires (275/65/18).

Truck looks great. I had my heart set on Trail Grapplers for a while until I saw the GY Duratracs and read some reviews on them. Still love the TG's just think the Duratracs fit my current needs better.

Real nice job on the truck thus far though, it's real clean and classy. How is the light output in the day/night on your tail lights now that you tinted them? (VHT I assume?) I have thought about doing this but being a NJ resident and knowing what assh@ts cops in this state can be I am hesitant. I like the look though, I think it would look nice on my slate Tundra with my BHLM.

Yes, it is VHT. The light output is great. I did the sides a lot darker than where the actual light is shown. I am thinking of adding some tow mirrors next. Anyone know of a good source? Are the amber lights on them actual lights or are they just reflectors?

Man, that looks good! How much $ did the plasti-dip on the bumpers and grill run you?

Looks awesome!
Those are the wheels I'm hoping to get, though I'll probably get the tera grapplers, or stick with the Falken Rocky Mountains that I have now, just in a wider tread.

I agree, but his might appear tucked in a little more cause most of his side shots are of the drivers side and yours is showing the rear right which sticks out more than any of the other 3 wheels.
