looks niceee, i would look into plasti-dipping the roof or vinyl wrapping the roof matte or gloss black, it would be a nice touch with your wheels, not really feelin the decals, but to each his own.

those bfg's are directional tires! That LF tire is facing the wrong way.
Two tires on left side of the car should be going LEFT<<<<
and other two on right side have to go RIGHT>>>>

look for the arrow on the sidewall of the tire

see the arrow on tread design

I changed them right after I made this thread haha nice catch tho. i did plasti-dip the back but yes definitley and I'm thinking about taking my side decals off but the one on the windshield is my own logo so that's def staying. does anyone have pics on how to do the front fender as far as fixing the rubbing issues? I rolled my rear fenders but I'm not too sure about how to do the front

You'll have to go way lower to even think about flaring.

I had the same rims, same tire size

Rear should clear at stock camber spec (BARELY) front will rub, mine did plenty even though everyone on this forum said it would fit no problem.

Take your fender liner and tuck it below the metal hooks, remove the black plugs. This should help but it will not eliminate the problem (especially if you are on springs and no front camber adjustment)

Rolling the fender in front means rolling those metal hooks bending those tabs closer to the fender to get a little closer

Weather tech, they don't even use adhesive they just slide inside the window and hold in place. I love these since they don't bulge out at all real slick looking
