put new wheels and tires on the truck this weekend.

Old:



New:






New were OEM 20's on a '13 model Ram 1500 Express. Same size, different tire (slightly more aggressive tread, though I still don't care for them) but the wheels are much more to my preference. The offset is a little more aggressive as well, meaning the stick out just a touch from the fenders.

They were free, and are brand new, so I honestly could care less about the tires. They roll, and for now with this transition coming up and the possibility of having to buy a home outright (if unemployed may not qualify for a loan on retirement/Soc. Sec), its $1200 I don't have to part with that can go somewhere else.

I gave the neighbor with the '13 my stockers with almost bald tires, because he gets a $250 credit if he gives them to the aftermarket wheel/tire shop he uses. He said there was no sense giving them brand new wheels and tires if my tires were bad. Score!
