And they look good!! But the poor little fellas at Tire Barn couldn't get the center cap screws out without snapping the screw heads off!! :banghead:
They didn't have didly-squat for tools so I ended up snapping a perfectly good center cap off cuz I was tired of waitin' on their inept azz!! So I got no center caps on now but got brand new tires for the big snow that is supposed to come our way!! Do you guys usually just drill & tap out the wheel?? That's my plan anyhoo.... Let's just hope my lifter and cam holds up!! :eek: :o

Looks good man. The more I see on this board the more I am thinking mine won't stay stock.

Is that Wagon sittng on stock suspension or did you lift it a couple to take on the 31's?
On the busted screw heads, I snapped two of mine off when I was changing them out. Fortunately I had just enough of the screw sticking out to be able to grab it with ViseGrips (doesn't take too much) after I sprayed it down with PB's just to get a little snot between the galled threads. If you can't get it with Grips, you'll have to drill them out. :(

That is with a 3" body lift...$90 from BJ's but a pain in the azz to install!! To get the center caps back on, I'm gonna use some allen screws with some anti-seize and lockwashers. :D

Nice, love those tires (A/Ts, not muds BTW) and have the same ones (size and all) on the wife's DD XJ. Great street tires with enough muscle for light wheeling. :thumbsup:
Also very jealous of the snow :mad:

They are all terrain!! Freaking bastchaes screwed me again!! I asked for muds..I didn't notice that they should have said Mud terrain on the sides till I looked on BJ's site and compaired them!!:( Oh well, I got a pretty good price anyhow... And here I thought I was getting a deal!! Nice call bigwalton!!:rolleyes:
P.S.--Don't be jelous of the snow, we are supposed to get slammed...

THEY broke your center caps. Make THEM replace them.
I hounded a place for several weeks (I worked across the street from the store) and made them replace the one they broke off (intentionally, too!).
