True, I could put some white under the black on the rims for when they chip

I ordered the Toyos today. Boring. Safe. Just what I need right now.

Wish I woulda done the 37's, glad I didn't. Next time once I can do the 7100's.

Discount told me that 325/80/16 size had been discontinued, and they were running ~$70 a tire more than the 37x17's. Meaning you could get FJC steelies plus 37x17 for about the same price as just the 37's for a 16" rim.

Question is whether a 1" spacer becomes too much in terms of flare and front well rubbing as you try to keep the 37's off the rear inner well. That's the part I didn't want to mess with, it could ultimately drive you to want more lift to tune it right, and then you are back into caster issues. I have 4" of up travel to the bumpstop in the rear on a 3.5" lift with 2" dropped bumpstops, so just dropping the stops another inch isn't viable the way it is with a 5" lift. It would have been close to working without other major mods on those narrower FJC rims, I just don't know "how" close.

In a couple years? If money allows, no question about it. I just can't get the dominos falling right now.
