    It’s driving great. Maybe a little bit stiffer, but very nice. The tires are actually quieter than stock.

    Great to know and thanks for the pictures! Was trying to see if the tires stick out a bit more than stock. Thanks again for taking the pictures.

    May I ask what taillight covers you are using or did you replace the whole light?

    I replaced the taillights with black lensed lights that are compatible with the BLIS.

    Are these 35’s? If so, did you notice any change in performance or MPG? I know the 35’s are about 10lbs heavier than KO2’s but I have those exact same Highland Bronze wheels and they are also about 10lbs lighter than stock wheels. Please give me some feedback as I’ve been looking at new tires.

    I put the wheels on with only 300 miles on my truck, so I didn’t get any real stats to compare. The weight nets out to be the same or maybe one pound less with the new set up, so I don’t see how it would have a negative impact. The way I figured, was with the venomrex wheels I could upgrade to a beefier tire while still maintaining the same or less weight.

    edit: yes, they are 35x12.5x17 ridge grapplers.

    Yeah, this is something I have been trying to find out as I want to put better looking more aggressive tires on. I have the same Venomrex 602’s in 17” with stock KO2’s but it seems like I am getting similar, if not less, mpg’s with the new wheels which doesn’t make sense to me since each wheel is 10 lbs lighter than the stock set up. I actually just posted a thread on this seeing if anyone had any experience or insight on this topic.

    Here are some photos with my Eibach’s installed on my 2019. Taken today and have put on about 260 miles since install. Feels great. Less body roll in turns and less bouncy/squishy going over bumps.
