  6. WTB: a used but good to fair condition 265/75/16 KM2 in SoCal

    Need one as a spare primarily, tread depth is not a huge deal so it can be well used but not looking for one with dry rot or repairs, just a clean used tire. Thanks!

    As far as the cost of parts+material I'd say I spent between $350-400, I'll have to add it all up when all said and done. The most expensive part was getting the mounts CNC cut and of...
