Sweet - I'm a 158 owner and a fisherman. Is your van lifted? It looks like a lot of clearance.

Thanks!

Fish all over the west coast if you ever want to get together. Walkandwade is my ig profile for fishing.
No lift, but those bigger tires fit with only front mudflap trimming. They are 245 65 16 duratracs. Killer tire, have pushed 6 inchea off fresh snow with them in the van, 2wd, no chains. The 06 158s come taller than any of the other t1ns to my knowledge. There are other years that are the same but many that are lower/ have smaller wheels from the factory.
