I'm going to blame all you guys for this last purchase, I swore up and down that I would wait with buying new tires and wheels until the stock tires were worn down enough to give me a good reason to buy new ones. But nooooooooo, you other viking owners just HAD to keep posting pics of your new tires and wheels, and it just kept eating away at me like a virus, so I broke my promise and got new ones for myself, lol, thats ok, the ole lady has already forgiven me just in case you were worried for my life, (I was), so here they are in a before and after pic. STI Black Diamond XTR in 27x9x12 front, and 27x11x12 rear on STI HD Beadlock 7x12 rims. Measured before and after, they gave 2" more in ride height, now have 13" in ride clearance.

Ahh, it's good to know who the original instigator of the whole deal is, now I know who to blame for every purchase I make from now on, it's vikingss212, LOL, I'll write his name on a slip of paper, and every time the wife ask's why I bought something for the viking, I'll just hand her the paper, lol

Do those black Diamond XTR's have a DOT stamp on them?

I'm going with the STI Black Diamonds too, mainly because of the DOT stamp on the side, which leads me to my next project of getting my Viking street legal in Michigan, where they actually issue a vehicle plate :)
