Now that you've had these tires for a few months what's your opinion on them? I like the way they look but don't want anything too noisy for my DD. Killer looking setup by the way.

I'm guessing your dog is a little jealous of the new rims, guessing by the looks of his little shanty on the back porch lol.

Silver Dollar- I have put around 4500 miles on them and I still love them. I am in the hunting season and these tires have great grip in the field and transition well on the high way. There is a little road noise, but nothing that will make you have to max your radio out to cover the noise. I have had to rotate them once already because they started to get way to loud. If you rotate every oil change you will be just fine. They are expensive, but I love the look and the offroad capabilities.

Or for automatic results check to see if your camera has an [HDR] Scene mode.

Just thought i would update this thread. I have had these tires for over a year now and they still have over half the tread from the start. I rotate them probably every 6000 miles if not sooner. I have rotated them 3 or 4 times. I will say after a rotation the become quite noisey. I did have to order a new set of Wheels. The clear coat on the wheels was peeling for some reason. Level 8 stuck behind their product and gave me a fresh set. The thing that did tick me off a little was that I still had to pay for a mount and balance from Discount Tire. Was not expecting to have to pay anything. It was around 70 I think to have them remounted and balanced. That put a sour taste in my mouth. Other than that the tires and wheels perform as expected. I will try and update with fresh pics sometime. I got new seat covers from Marathon Seat Covers. I love them.

I have the same tires as you and am looking at xd heist wheels. They are 16x8 with a 10mm offset. I have a pro comp 2.5 front and 1.5 rear nitro kit. Do you think these rims will fit without trimming? If not what do you think I'd have to trim? Thanks!

The 16x8 ET+10 Heist wheels you are considering will sit about an inch further in when compared to where your current 16x8.5 ET-6 ZX wheels sit now which is good. With 285/60R-18 tires installed, you shouldn't have to make any modifications.

On a side note, we do not carry the XD Heist but we can order a set for you
