looks awesome
 












is your explorer stock height? if so you may get a little bit of rubbing from the 32 11.5. My bud has an x that he had 32s on and it rubbed so if your staying stock height i would suggest 31"s
 






Discount tire has done well on pricing for me.

well i have shackles and im gonna do TT, but there not on now, I figure ill put them on at the same time as the tires, i should be good then right 2"?
 






http://www.treadepot.com has them for $180 each with free shipping

Take that price to your local Discount Tire if you want all their services that come with buying tires from them. My local one will price match no problem, as long as they can go online and get the same qoute that I brought in.

You may still need to do a little trimming up front. I did with my 32x10.5's.

dude that looks fresh, good job
 






so how much room do you have in the front when turning? is it real close or does it have some space?

well when i first put them on, i could only turn like 2 inches, but most of it was against the fender not the bumper, u know what i mean? i had to cut about a 2"x 4" hole. but it was just in the plastic fender insert, i didnt have to cut any medal! then on the front bumper i just cut about 1 inch off the side of the bumper. then i put one tire on a curb to make sure i wouldnt rub when i flexed, and it was fine, im about 1" 1/2 to 2" away from everything. took about 30 min. to do both sides.
