Thread: help with tires

  1. #1

    Default help with tires

    Hey ya'll, I am lookin to run a separate set of rims and tires for Blue (my pickup) I am plannin on gettin some Yokohama Geolander ht/s's. Based on what I've seen I can get em installed at a local place for about 650 installed. Any opinions about the tires themselves or the price? Also I am having a heck of a time finding used rims for the truck (I need a 17x7.5 inch six spoke steel wheel). I guess my main problem with finding the wheels is that i dont wanna spend much more than approximately 250 bucks on em. Suggestions?

    The only experience I've had with those tires is that my son ran them on his Dodge and they didn't last very long at all. I don't know if it was the tire or the son, but he is a mechanic and buys his own tires. As for wheels, I have bought my last 2 or 3 set off of Craig's List and have been well pleased. Good luck!

    Yoko's are ok, but really don't last that long unless you rotate more often. These tires by 04 are good solid tire and perform very well, had these on the F150(sorry guys)....
