Hey everyone,

I think I have decided on the tires and wheels, but would like some opinions berfore I actually spend the money.

I am leaning towards the Moda R10s in an 18x8 (40mm) in the front, and 18x9 (45mm) in the rear.

Here is a photochop of the wheels:


For tires I am thinking about the BFG KDW-2 in a 245/40YR18 in the front, and 275/35YR18 in the rear.


So what do you think?

Do the wheels go well with the Goat (I think they do)?
I know I will have to roll/grind the rear, but should the tire/wheel combo fit (I don't know how square the shoulders on the BFGs are compared to the factory Bridgestones)?

I personally don't like the wheels, but that's just my opinion. Otherwise, they should have no problem at all fitting with rolling/grinding down of the fenders. Good luck with your purchase.

The wheels are okay, nothing great in my opinion, but okay. I'm not up to speed on the different styles available, but I think you could probably find a better 7 spoke, if that is what you are going for.

No offense, but they just aren't exciting enough of a design. But, otherwise, they're not bad.

I don't like the wheels, but sounds like they will fit.

Also, you might want to try 245/45 and 275/40's instead for more sidewall.

Only if he was doing 17" wheels. Those sizes in 18" would cause rubbing problems.
