New tires for the truck

I finally got new wheels and tires for my Chevy Colorado. Since it’s a work truck model, it came equipped with cheap 15×6 painted steel wheels. After 8 years, those wheels had seen better days. As did the TPMS sensors mounted on them.

But, that’s all changed. Got some new MB TKO wheels in 15×7. And, fitted them with some Falken Wildpeak AT3W tires. Amazingly enough, on pavement the Falkens are a smoother ride than my old BFGoodrich Long Trails. I suppose that’s due to the Falkens being made of a softer rubber compound. The real bonus though, I’ll finally have traction on something other than pavement.
