I don’t think tires give you a warning when they’re going to fall apart, but yea keep an eye on them

Thanks and I will keep vigilant with respect to the tires until I get my next paycheck.

Installed, driven 250+ miles on highway and logging roads/washboard gravel hell and no vibration, shimmy, or anomaly. Had to trim the front bumper and will have to pound in the back of the driver side wheel well a bit, but no stock ride height and it looks and rides great.

Pics to come.

I also have to get GMC center caps. The bowties are driving me nuts.

Wasn’t ever a fan of those wheels but they look good on your truck!

Looks great, I've wanted to do the same with the newer 2011+ 18's or 20's myself
