OK Folks. My 255/50R-19 Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow tires came today. Took them to NTB to put them on. Took the guy 10 min to finally ask me how to unlock the hatch. I eventualy drove off with the P's finally on there. These bad boy float over the pavement. I can still feel the serious bumps and dips, but the normal stuff like the joints in the road are almost non-existant. I actually feel like I can take corners a lot faster now. At the same time, the truck feels a little sluggish like it has extra weight in it. Maybe I just need to get used to them.

I miss my 22's, but the ride is a lot smoother with my stock socks.

Now all I need is some Ice and snow, and I will be good to go.

So that was it. Quick and dirty.

Ke.

You're the man-you're the next 'Ricky Lake'-you're going to the Top ? ? Just remember they're my preference for RRS 19" rims !
If one is keen to explore the wilderness a bit more, I'd suggest picking up other sets of 18 inch rims with All-Terrain tyres man.
I used to run the 17" fitments to a company Jeep Cherokee Ten years ago with the "Z" logo tread pattern and always turn the wheels towards the kerb when parked on the street, that way all bystanders can check out your totally gorgeous rims and rubber.

Actually I got them through Tire Rack. Total with shipping was $915 or something close to that. Ordered on Tues, got them on Thursday.

NTB Charged me $70 to take off my 22's, take off 3 conti's from my stock 19's (nailed a tire 250 miles into them), put the new tires on the 19's and mount. So it may be a little cheaper, or maybe not. Plus they were the only ones open late that would put on tires that I didnt get from them.

I love my P's, but for looks, I cant wait until salt season is over so I sparkle up and down 435.

Guys.

Photos please, photos on this forum showing the new bad as setup now sitting under your carriage for us wheeler dealers dude !

The price at the fitter is simply superb, sounds like most of you jokers are going to be regulars and do they do shocks/brakes ?
