    Those wheels fit perfect, and I like the dark bronze with the green. Those tires though...look too passenger car, they look out of place on such a badass truck IMO. The tires hold the wheels back.

    Thanks! :)

    Agreed, but as I mentioned this thing is basically a grocery getter for the next few years, so it made sense to get these less aggressive tires for now.

    I have only driven about 100km on this setup, but initial observations are that there seems to be lest tire noise. I think I'd now describe the noise more as a "whirring" where as the TA's were more of a "humming." The ride is definitely smoother. I'd guess that this is either due to the tires balancing out better or the fact that the wheels are a proper hub-centric fitting. Looking at the new wheels/tires, two didn't have any weights to balance out and the most on any rim was 2.5oz. With the BFG's all the wheels had weights with the most being 4.5oz.
