different big and littles

To me, the wheels make or brake a car! This project now comes to life with the only possible wheel and tire combo.

To make this deal happen it took almost 6 month of my life to get the manufacturer to send us a set of his black diamonds! He didn´t even know what the Sand Scorcher was until I told him and I guess he still doesn´t care........!

SMOOTHEE never had grooves according to the famed manufacturer. I also decided to go for the bigger 6.75 instead of the 4.50s to get the right big and little look!

..and yes, we´ve already bought TIRE WHITE!

There is always a big WOW in the tire shop when we come by to to get something mounted on rims!

I have to admit that I almost thought I would never get them. The manufacturer of these tires was one of the hardest persons to deal with in my entire life!

WHY?

 

This is tire porn in it´s purest form.
