is anyone running this size on their dually? just wondering if i can get some pics....is this a good idea for a dually? lookin mainly for these because i want to kill the 4.10's and get better fuel mileage
well really, i am lookin for a taller tire to get me a little bit better milage....i have 235 75 16 now and they are just too small..... lookin for somethin taller but not wider, not really wantin to run spacers
Using a gear/tire calculator I came up with an increase of 3.57mph going from a 235/75 to a 235/85, I guess if you need tires the switch is ok. But I sure would not buy tires just to get that. Maybe for the cool factor and extra height look into 19.5's?? If not there is also always a gear swap, I had 3.55's in my 99 5 speed and fuel economy was good and it pulled anything I hooked to it.
i def need tires, i bought the truck knowing it needed tires...it still has the stock michelin ltx's on the back and some junk off brands on the front...shes def due for some new shoes...i appreciate ur help haulin
Nitto makes some nice skins that are highway tires, but have good tread on them. They look more like a AT than a highway tread. They are called Highway grapplers. You can get them on Discount tires direct for a reasonable price. And they are a sight sponsor!!
