I got my winter tires/wheels mounted up today. 285/75/16 Yokohama Geolander A/T II's on 16x8 AR Python wheels. I got $320 (thanks Craigslist)into the set up including mounting and balancing. Hopefully these tires are good in the snow/ice.

Gotta love Craigslist! I have bought and sold many things on there. Did the tires balance out good for you? Just wondering why they sold the set?

Yeah, Craigslist has been pretty good for me. The wheels were $150 and the tires were $125, 2 at half tread and the other 2 just under half.

The tires balanced pretty good, I believe the worst one took 4oz to balance out, the best 2 1/2oz.

Guy I got the tires from said the owner of the tires downsized. No plugs or patches and all seem to hold air fine. They aren't even weather checked.



I also scored these wheels/tires too. 18x9 KMC Enduro 275/65/18 Goodyears

Yeah, they did, but wide tires in the snow/ice/slop suck. The 20's will most likely be back on in the spring, hopefully with a set of 35's or 37's.

go 35's. 37s are really heavy, should be regeared, and look better outside a set of 22's instead.
