HAH!
Thats a sweet 84 F150. Do you have more pictures of it? What size are you changing to?

I like the 255 70 15 size too. I have BFG TAs on mine right now. I was thinking about going to a 30x9.50x15 Michelin LTX MS next time.

i'm thinkin about upgrading to 15X10 inch rims with Goodyear Duratec 31x10.5x15 tires. but i'll get my 5x7's for now and just get the tires.

If you are going to go to a 31 10.50 15 tire then get a 15x8 wheel. A 15x10 wheel will make the sidewall bulge out and make the sidewall stick out more than the tread.

I saw on your page that your truck has 180k on the drivetrain. Mine has 275k on the orginal drivetrain and still runs great. I enjoy seeing the higher mileage trucks with original drivetrain.

thanks for the info, i'll keep that in mind! and i actually rolled over 181,000 miles about 3 weeks ago. and i've had no major hiccups other than the usual ones that come with a 25 year old truck

Over torqued lug nuts do not really cause warped rotors, however, uneven torqued lug nuts will. Also I would try Firestone Complete Auto Care for tires, sell good quality tires and when they install the wheels, they use an impact wrench with a torque stick that is only rated at 55 ft lbs, then lower the vehicle to torque the wheels down with a torque wrench to the vehicle specs.
