Default T-Boys in Lafayette

Just wanted to give a shout out to T-Boys Tire and Automotive on Congress St. here in Lafayette. They installed a leveling kit and tires on my truck and did a great job. Dropped my truck off at 7:30 and it was done by noon. They even gave me a ride back home so my wife and kids didnt have to get up and out so early and offered to come back and get me once my truck was ready. Very professional staff and great price too.

My factory tires are for sale too. They are posted in the classified section on here. Only 3,850 miles on them.

I've used them several times. Always pleased with the work and more importantly, the service.

Which tires and size did you go with? I have some Toyo 275/70R18's on a 2010 Silverado 1500 that are about done. I'm thinking about trying something different this time around. Maybe the BFG KO2

I went with 34 inch Nitto Ridge Grapplers. Smooth ride and very little road noise. I really like them so far.

Glad to see you give these cats a shout-out. They did a level and tires on my truck and did a great job also. I've been back for every oil change and tire rotation since and I always leave pleased. Guys are legit and prices good.

Im definitely going to let them do my oil changes and tire rotations also, especially since tire rotations are free for the life of the tires.

I dropped off my truck this morning for new tires and replace a bad TPMS. I was very surprised at the price they quoted me for the 275/70R18 Ridge Grapplers. Cheaper than any website I looked at.

Good deal. I have only put a few hundred miles on mine so far but really like them. Post up some pics after you pick it up.

I?m loving them so far. They ride smoother and have less road noise than the Open Country RTs. I love the looks too.

Same here. I dont find that they messed with the fuel mileage much at all either.

I filled up the day I put the tires just to calculate the change. I know the RTs killed my mileage so I might actually get a little gain with these.
