Picked em up a few hours ago and just got home, traveled 100 miles round trip for them! and he lied to me... they arent the white wagon wheels... THEY ARE THE CHROME wagon wheels!!!

surface rust and no dings in the chrome, but I still think im gonna paint them only because they rust is hardcore.

Tires are already balanced and they have no bulges or leaks and have been sitting at 35psi full for quite a while without any leaks, he even checked the pressure before I grabbed them :)

after I get them cleaned up tonight (high pressure spray down) ill get some pictures up.

Lucky SOB got a 79 F150 for $200 with a straight axle D44 :) not to mention an inline 6 and a 300 that still run fine.

well I got the tires on and aired up :)

unfortunately im not gonna be able to save the chrome :( too much rust damage, so I took it down as far as I could with grinder and sand paper, later on ill be grabbing some gun-metal gray paint and repainting them, but for now its just the rims and tires on the truck.

difference in tread depth, as you can see same pattern, but for the price cant freaking beat it

and in reply to the AT or EXT above, they are the LT and are actually made by Cooper tires :)



and of course the difference in rim :)
