I will once these Michelins wear out. At $175 per tire I'm gonna keep them until they wear out. I will probably go 265/75/R16. I don't want to deal with rubbing.

Looks good man. I don't blame you for wanting to wear out the tires you have. I don't think you will have to worry about rubbing with 285s. I just put some 285/75-16 with about 60% tread life left on mine and only have very minor rubbing in sharp turns. I'm not lifted. I'm sure they would rub more if they were brand new or the suspension got flexed. Today we took ours through some rough stuff and had no rubbing due to flex. Either way, nice looking ride. BTW, what tire do you think you will get?

Love that color Shinyboy. If I bought one new it would definitely be my choice.

Heres mine all cleaned up today. Front windows tinted and white pin-stripe removed. Next project will probably be black wheels.

Here are some pics of my stock Pathfinder and my lifted Titan:

Here's a pic of my grille mod (cutting out the stock "honeycomb" and replacing it with expanded sheet metal). I haven't decided if I will keep it this color or paint the entire grille with bedliner. Don't mind the zip ties. I was using them to hold things together before I fully assembled it:

@ Wizzard005

We'll all want to see photo's of that completed. What size tires are you going to be able to run?

The website says 305 x 65 x 17 will fit, however I really want to run 295x70x17 on a 17x8 rim. We will see, that is the part i have having trouble with say i am going to use wheel adapters so i have a better selection of rims...


The build, install pictures will be posted on my site, but i will update the finished pic here on this form
