    Agreed. The little bit of extra cush from the taller sidewall and lighter weight....sweetness.

    Thank you.

    The wheel and tire combo should be 67 to 68 pounds, this includes lug nuts, sensor and center cap.

    Future plans for my RCSB. (subject to change)

    1. PDR the cab and smooth out all of the little dings and dents.

    2. Replace the metal front bumper with a resin 'SPORT' bumper.

    3. Touch up paint chips & scratches.

    4. Replace the pitted windshield and tint it with Ceramic.

    5. Continue cleaning and touching up the interior.

    6. Auburn PRO

    I have shelved plans to add long tube headers because they are not cost effective for me. The LSD remains on my wish list, but it's not a priority. The LTX A/T² tires that came on the PRO wheels ride great and they should last a very long time... I have listed the TOYO's for sale in The Marketplace. Over time I may also add an LED bulb here and there, but nothing radical.

    I have Michelin Defender LTX M/S in 285/70/17 and love how they ride. They’re not the toughest looking tires, but I don’t need extra road noise in exchange for shorter lifespan and tougher looks.

    If / when I wear out these A/T tires, I will replace them with Defenders.

    I have a set of HERITAGE center caps on the way, I will paint and maybe alter them to suite my needs.

    Same here... the LTX M/S² are mounted on the old SR5 alloy wheels I painted white.

    Mine are on the Limited set I have. I bought them last summer, then stumbled on the BBS take-off rim/tire package last fall. Then I also have a set of Limited rims/tires with studs that are for the winter. I have an overabundance of tires. I'm actually thinking that some may dry rot before I can wear them out. o_O

    Lol! I have two sets stored inside the house to prevent dry rot... one set is 11 years old.

    Ya, you have me bested! Now I'm asking myself what the production date is on my oldest set (winter), I bought them used in 2014 so they can't be too bad, but it's very dry here and the sun is brutal on everything.

    I painted the lettering a metallic silver to match the bright metal on the wheels. Not my best work, but it looks a hell of a lot better than the screaming red TRD center.

    As you can see from this picture, my air pressure was a little low (30 lbs.). I am now running 36 in the front and 35 in the rear, these tires ride smooth.

    Thank you.

    I understand that these BBS alloys have a +60mm / 2.36" Offset, can anyone confirm this?
