New Shoes for My "Blue Girl"--a few pics

The new tires showed up over the last few days, not mounted up yet, but here are a few shots. Got Toyo T1R's in stock siizes for the front, and Nitto 335-30-18 DR's for the back. Just waiting on the 18x12" wheels for the back to get everything mounted up. Here's a few shots: I'll take more when I get them on the car.










one more of the Nitto's:

Every extra 10mm is 0.4 inches wider.... plus or minus a little as the tire manufacturers do round to closest measurement.

Back when I was in high school I worked in wheel/tire shop and fell in love with Toyos. Ill probably never put anything else on my cars again. Good choice...

Jim, just curious, is your car mini tubbed? I would love to go to the 335 Nittos, but dont want to do the mini tubs. I guess Im still looking for a way to make it work.
