    ya thxs guys, i didn't want to do anything to wild to it as it is a family wagon but i could't stand the wimpy little tires that look like a passenger car tire that came stock on it. i think the new tires give it a more rugged look and it actualy rides better plus i gained a 1" 1/2 ground clearence which i could notice when i had to step up a little further into the drivers seat;D
