Very nice, clean looking Durango you got there. Them tires look good too. That is a very interesting mount point for the front off road lights though, but it doesnt look bad.

thanks qtip

yeah...i decided to be different.
i first thought about a front light bar...but decided to go this route.
(but i still want the bar)
i said the heck with it...if i break or crack the grille...i'll go back to my stock grille.
plus...i wasn't too thrilled with this one.
i've been getting a few compliments...which is always nice.

this guy that lives down my street asked if i can do this same thing to his mustang...since his didn't come with the stock fogs and doesn't want to pay for a new grille.
we'll see how that goes.

yeah...i thought my 31" original KM's were nice.
these things feel bullet proof...even though bf's are kinda soft.
i can't wait to wheel these.

i'll take a pic of my old 31"

i'm thinking of selling them...anyone in southern cal interested?

tomorrow is gonna be 2 weeks with them on...
DAMN, I love them! and i haven't taken them off roading...yet.
just street use.
i thought my old KM's were nice, like i said above...they feel bullet proof for a soft tire.
i'm thinking of getting some for my Gladiator. i'll probably have to wait till the end of year for those since those will be 35" $$$. i have to hold back on the funds a bit.
i'm sure you must be feeling excited. it was the longest week and a half i had to wait when i ordered mine.
i felt like a kid on christmas all over again!
post some pics when you get those puppies on.

I will! They should be here in a few days, but I'm gonna wait to mount them up until I'm sure the snow is gone.... Don't wanna mess up the aftermarket wheels with salt!

I hope so! Not to mention the list price on them in my size is $321 per tire. Ouch.

BTW, how do the 12.5" tires fit on your 8" wheels? Granted, you have more sidewall that I will, but technically mine are 12" wide and I have 8.5" wheels.

$321 (you're right...OUCH!) i hope you got insurance with those tires.
i paid $201 a pop...out the door w/insurance/balance/tax/other little state charges here and there...$998.65

12.50's are very common on 15x8 wheels. the wheels are well protected with this setup and i wanted a more wheelin tire setup. i had 10.50's on these same wheels, but they kept getting nicked due to less protection (should've installed the wheel rings), plus i really didn't like how they looked...didn't look meaty enough (looks count too). i was gonna go with 32x11.50's but i said "what the heck...i'll go bigger".
the downside on a 8" wide is that the bulge of the tire leads to premature at the center of the tire...unless you go with lower tire pressure. that's what i've been told.

$321 doesn't include the road hazard coverage or mounting/balancing. OTD price with road hazard coverage and mounting/balancing with 6% MI Sales tax brings it to $1,620.64. Granted, that's the computer price, and I get all my tires at cost. So I'm thinking they'll be around $1,200.
