Talking Changed to bigger tires

I changed my tire and wheel combo twice in the same day from the standard 17" to the 20" when I got my truck.I first installed the 255/35/20 Nitto tires on the Stunner wheels,looked at it for a while,took some pictures,and looked at it some more. I decided that the tires were too short.I sold the tires to my neighbor and installed 275/45/20" Goodyears on the Stunner wheels.Much better!! Now the wheelwell is filled with tire.Seems like the best size.Looks much better now.I am now stripping the coating from the running boards to prepare them for polishing.I am also installing Silverado-style door protector guards.I looked at the Honda door guards and quickly decided that there is NOT 394.00 worth of product.I will post new pictures when I am finished.

Re: Changed to bigger tires

Definitely post pictures please. I have been considering larger tires but have been hesitant. I would really like to see what your latest version looks like.

When we have no thought of achievement, no thought of self, we are true beginners. Then we can really learn something.
