My new shoes......

MHT FUEL HOSTAGE 17x8.5 ET+14
NITTO TERRA GRAPLERS 265/70/17










Slight rubbing on the liner at full lock but, nothing a heat gun can't fix. The tires are extremely quite for A/Ts and handle well. Alltho, they did take a lot of weights to balance to 0.

Future mods---- skids, Rage roof cargo basket, PIAA 525 auxiliary lights,

Nice!

I'm not a big fan of the TG's, but the wheels and tire size fit nicely. Rig looks good

Thanks Matt.

What is your experience with the TGs? I wanted to get the Duratracs but, I got a great deal on these.

It's just a subjective thing. I think Nitto ruined the tire by putting the "hotwheels" lightning bolts on the sidewall. Every time I see them i just shake my head like "wtf were they thinking".

Other than that, reviews on them are hit or miss. The seem to wear quick on fullsize trucks... owners either end up loving them or hating them.
