I can’t wait to see it! I love the bronze color but they didn’t offer it in this wheel and I couldn’t pass up the deal I got on these.

Thank you! As a matter of fact, I purchased the tires from Discount Tire and they installed them on my rims.

your tuck looks great. Did you notice any range loss once changing tires and leveling?
Hard to say how much since I didn’t drive the truck very long before modifying it. Also, is soon as I modified it the weather started warming up. What I did notice was the level kit seemed to take the range hit more than the wheels/tires. I had it leveled for a few weeks with the stock wheels and I could tell there was a range hit. Adding the wheels/tires didn’t seem to make a difference. I do a frequent, and consistent 29 mile drive on a country road with no stop signs with some rolling terrain. I drive it 55-60 and average get 2.0 or 2.1. Honestly I don’t pay too much attention to it unless I’m planning to drive further than I typically routine.

Interestingly, I used to focus on all the numbers as I was navigating throughout my day even though I always came home with plenty of battery. I watched this YouTube guy do a pro/con on the Lightning and one of the cons IHO was too much data on the default screen. He was always analyzing the numbers rather than just driving like he would his ice truck. He said he switch the calm screen and really started to enjoy the driving more. I decide to give it a try and I felt the same. I typically drive with the calm dash now and it really does “calm” me down, lol. If I’m towing something or doing a long trek I change it up but on my normal day to day, I have it on calm and I just drive.
