One hundred per cent you don't know what your talking about. Repeat you live in mid USA you don't have these tires. Your not in baja with the tires or ton test so sorry. You have no clue.:)


Special tires for special people, eh?
I guess you blockheads buy square tires, and the rest of us (especially “mid americans”) buy the round ones :lol:
Baja Blow hard joke JAAAAAA

We have been out testing the tires off road 5 times already. I asked the tire installer to put 30 psi in them. After 4 tests I figured I better check since I use a bleeder gauge 3 tires at 32psi one at 34 psi. My old tire I ran at 26psi so I let them down to that. Did high speed highway run they did not heat up. Off road good over washboard so for normal everyday dirt street 26psi like the other tires.

Is that a bumpy ride with such a high psi? Have you heard of the tire chalk test?

Truck looks great at that height. Got a new moto tire for you to try out. 10 year veterans of mt43 switching to MotoZ Arena Hybrid gummy. 3 guys I rode with in Colorado have made the switch. I will give it a try next tire change. I think it is Chinese and cost 52 bucks.

Hey Ed do they make it in smaller size like 400x18. My 450 runs I need check Cheater tire but is 450x18 it had very short life few rides worn out. When we tested new truck tires we went it San Vicente wash area where. 4x4 get stuck as it is some type sand you just sink. All other place of wash I can haul butt in third gear 2wd. So on our test the truck in 2wd did in fact get stock in test. was at 32 psi one at 34psi. We got out locked hubs noticed our tracks where over one foot deep. slight hole rear tires dug in 4x4 low range it pulled right out .Never got on top of sand digging all the way. Yesterday with 26psi as expected less digging managed to wind it out it low second got it in third then got on top sand less trenching. So very happy with new shoes.:) I just ordered a power tuner for it bumps Hp and torque will report.

I have now put many off road and Street miles on the almost BFGs. On new pavement slight wine. Hard to hear with ac and music on. I have settled on 26psi just like the small tires I had. Good ride real good hi speed paved turns. Now the dirt part coming back from TJ airport just past Stana Tomas where road work is. Sad to say a American lady lost her life there. Over 4 hours back up road was closed 3 miles of cars. I did u turn back to S T took off on dirt road to San Vicente. Poor Girls in truck It handled with all the work I did Like my pre runner. I know a cut off route that gets you back to HYW 1 half way back to SV. Im hoping I can run the tire down to 15 psi off road. Im happy with the fact that now less RPMs at 75mph. The down side the take off as expected slower. So I ordered a tuner for fuel rail it has 24 positions each more power. At only number 7 setting truck has more power then small tires. So more then happy with the tuner that plugs in fuel rail.
