The purpose of this forum for the many years I have been a member have been of members posts that are inquiring about problems they are having ie.. seeking advice OR giving advice to members needing help.

This thread has been mocked and ruined by mainly one participant so I am done with this thread whether itís closed or not.
OMG!!! How can anyone NOT have tires with raised white letters!? It gives you 2 more horsepower!

Jimmy N. About the only way you can go wrong is if you measure from different points on the sidewalls (letters etc. make it a less than good surface), or use staggered lugs for the measurements.

It may take a couple of tries to get it just right since you don't have swivel plates to put the tires on, but rolling the pickup forward a few inches serves pretty much the same purpose.

I like clamping something straight to the rotors, then measuring at about 20 inches fore and aft of axle center.

A camber adjustment isn't really possible on a live axle, so you might as well go for the cheap and simple fix.


I understand what youíre saying now. Iíll check it out Iíll look up how to do it and see if I can knock it out in my garage.

NordicNevs Well the other day (as some of you know) I ran my finger across the outer thread pattern and inner pattern of the front tires. Notices some heavy wear on the outer tread of the tires.

Cupping was very obvious on both front tires.

Truck has 2800 miles on it and its the Firestones but that said firestones or not, that's too early for them too be cupping even if they are a less than decent tire.

Ill bring it to the alignment shop in the next few weeks and get my toe set as well as my caster and camber and then throw some new NITTOs on it. Ditch these before the mild winter comes out way haha.

They look great man!! Can you let me know what size the tires are, rim width and offset? Also did you add a leveling kit to the front or lift it at all? Thanks in advance for the feedback!!

Rbohno My initial impression is they balanced well as they are smooth as glass on the highway. No road noise and my only initial critique is they are either running to much air (65 psi) making them harder ie.. rides feels a bit bumpier or the tread design is causing the slightly different ride.

Quick question, I know in my gen 4 the tech could adjust tire sizes in the computer ď with MINIMAL optional sizesĒ. I went one size up to a 285/65/20 so my speed will be off about 2mph at 60mph. Does anyone know if we can adjust these gen 5s tire size?
Not that we buy these trucks for the mpg but with that being off it affects range shown on fuel and I use that on trip planning as to where I stop for fuel. Not a big deal just curious really.
