    Just got my nittos installed on a set of 2018 TRD rims. I’m a little biased but I think it looks damn good. 295 70 18’s. As of right now haven’t noticed any rubbing and it’s not hitting the UCA’s. Currently raining but I’ll post more pics once it clears up

    Should work, B51’s at top add ~2.3”

    NRG’s shoot rocks in case you’re wondering what keeps hitting your truck when you drive off anything gravelly. It’s the underside, no worries.

    Hey Dabutcher,
    Nice Tires! Looking to get the same ones very soon. How do they ride so far? Also what kind of step rails are those? Those look rad!

    I believe those are Tyger Auto star armor step rails.

    Looks like we got the same color! You don’t see many of them and I think they look sharp. Idk why they quit making it

    Yes mine too, enjoying them a lot. Aggressive look but no pud-pud-pud mud tire sound. That rock shooter I mentioned only happens in the first few hundred feet when the tire grooves expand from centrifugal force and spits them all out, otherwise it’s smooth sailing afterward.

    On heavy wheels I lost 1-2mpg. Keep in mind odo/speedo will also be off 6%, difference in size from stock.

    Yeah I honestly didn’t notice much loss in MPG. Also was curious about the mph difference. I couldn’t notice much of a difference but just to be safe I drove about 5 mph under what the speedo said. Anyway to correct that?

    That photo looks sweet. I’m out in Wisconsin so not much for trails but I’ll get to try them out in the snow come winter and some hunting trails come deer season

    Good to know, your lighter stock TRD wheels help mpg. I’ve got heavy Methods.

    There are calibrators that can be installed to correct any speedo/odo. I generally don’t drive fast, and will use an app if I want to know my live speed. Bigger tires = slower odo count, good for resale lol

    Yeah I guess I’m not too concerned with it. I learned the hard way with my last truck. Got a ticket going 10 over or what I thought was 10 over ended up being close to 15. Cop didn’t go for the whole “I didn’t know”
