They did look good! Should've kept em and gone with the suggestion from @Jakes40 lolAll I know is that the M&S rated silent armors are boring in the snow. Theyre too damn grippy with lots of sipping. I was kinda looking forward to sliding around and really wanted to hit some deep mud with the new tires- the KM2s looked freakin amazing too... SAD times man. Sad times.
Also- it turned out my stud wasnt broken. Just the lug nut itself snapped in half while I was torquing it down (apparently do not stand on the breaker bar- I guess it only needs 95 ftlbs not 200 ftlbs- lesson learned). Picked up a new lug nut at the toyota dealer.
Thanks for the offer. I might take you up on that... I actually special ordered the KM2 because the KM3 and K02 dont come in 255/80r17.I had KM2s on my 80 and was less than thrilled with their performance during Snowmageddon. @PRADO3 I don't know the offset on the wheels on my Tacoma but they're 285/70/17 KO2s. LMK if you want to swap them on to your GX and take them for a spin around the block. FWIW, the KM3s on my 80 are not loud at all. I'm actually surprised you found KM2s on the shelf a year after the KM3s came out.
I have always been suspect of anything more than a trasharoo being attached to a spare tire. All is well until you have to change the tire or mount your stuff back to a mangled tire.
I just want to look like the cool broverlanders. Worst case scenario, I can throw everything in the back or poorly strap it to the roof.I have always been suspect of anything more than a trasharoo being attached to a spare tire.
