Hi all,

We did pick up our Vision 81 wheels and hub caps while in Seattle just after the Fall Rally. Got home and ordered the Michelin SDX2 245/70/19.5 wheels, then realized we needed to have new chrome wheel nuts as well.

Ordered those from Tulip City Wheels in Michigan. Took two parcels to get them here, but this morning finally got the new wheels and tires onto the truck. Sadly, when I got the caps with the wheels from Les Schwab they provided four of the same ones, but they are sending up two C81M-DEEP units that will fit the rear hubs. They don't make front hub covers with the hole in them, so I have to use a hole saw to make a hole to allow for the lock/auto hub engager to work.

Also have to now go out and adjust the front mud flaps slightly so they don't get contact from the wheels when turning tightly.

First ride home, they feel great. Really looking forward to seeing how they are with the camper on.
