View Full Version : Where to Get Wheels and Tires

Well the times have finally come around and will be getting my lift and all put together in my garage before a weekend wrenchathon is due to install all of it.I did not think i would ever have enough to do this at once but some seriously bad shit has happened to me and now i need to rebound with this gift to myself.My Father passed away in November and it is very hard day to day to get by but my dad loved my truck as much as he loved his own so it gives some good feelings and he would want me to do this.My Question is where do you get the best prices on some Weld Scorpios and also some offroad tires?lookin at the 16x8 with enough bs and probably some 305/70r16's for my 4.5 inch lift but i would like to avoid any of these crook 4x4 shops round here for that reason.Thanks for any feedback.
Projected Lift: Donohoes set a 2.0in,Deavers or Alcans setup for my applications,Roger Brown 2in. Body Lift.Blistein 5100s for the rear

www.desertrat.com usually has good wheel/tire pacakages. also try www.ntwonline.com. www.tirerack.com has decent tire prices as well. if you have a discount tire near you, they usually price match and offer free mounting/balancing/rotating
if you keep the donahoes at 2" you'll be sitting ass high so unless you're going for that look you might want to crank them up to 2.5. are you planning on running 33" tires?

Thanks for the links as they will help.Yeah i was going to run 33 inch tires with 16in. rims.I was going to see what the angles looked like before raising further.Not trying to sit ass high but I do tow occasionally and stiffer springs might be needed instead of a little ass high look.I am planning on getting the ORS manual hub kit and raising further but I am not gonna do that right away.So how much lift for the rear springs and would I need to add a shackle or somethin after more lift from the coilovers is added? After lookin at some tacomas with 4 inches of lift this seems like it will look good.Pinch weld will be needed I am sure and maybe some trimming of the flares.Also the backspacing is okay as long as it is close to 3.75 right? Cuz the weld website has some bs's that are not exactly 3.75 Appreciate it.
