New Rims Method Standards

I put some new rims on my PW 2016 , I should Probably have a Build Thread, but havnt started one yet. Anyway, in case anyone wants to see what 17In Method Standards look like. They are 5.75 Backspace or + 18 offset. I was kind of upset Method doesnt offer many Wheels in 17" with +18 offset, most are...

Re: Thuren Overland System (1.5" lift)

I have thuren`s Overland on the front of my 16 Tradesman, with 37s, Ridge Grapplers, Stock Rear suspension. The ride is nice, its not light years ahead of stock, and when I go off road on rocky rutted trails here in AZ it is still rough. I know tire air pressure has a lot to do with it, and I believ...

Re: A Little FYI on Tire Balance

Yeah, I have heard that it is possible to run bead locks and Toyos, with no weight inside or out. It has to do with quality of Wheel, and Tires. Toyos are probably the best. Trail Ready`s, or Innov8 wheels I have seen done that way. On getting mine balanced I had it done originally when I put the Ri...

A Little FYI on Tire Balance

Just a little story from my recent experience on having tires re balanced. I have about 6k on my Ridge grapplers. 37/12.50/17. I rotated them a while ago, but didnt re-balance at the time, they were pretty good, nothing that noticeable so I figured I could wait a while. I finally had it done this pa...

Re: Carli 2.0 Back Country feedback

Yeah, down travel is limited by bump stops hitting axle pads.

Re: Carli 2.0 Back Country feedback

Yeah, down travel is limited by bump stops hitting axle pads. Shock shafts usually have more travel than the space between bump stops and pads on axle. My understanding is that when you lift a truck, specifically the 3 inches (or 1.5 inches over stock in front) most do with a PW, you are just really...

Re: Toyo MT 37x 12.5(D) vs 13.5(E)

Thanks for the reply, was wondering what the tire measures itself mounted and on truck ... The wheel opening looks close to mine at the lip I think Im 44 3/4 or so. My Ridge grapplers are 36" or so with 40 lbs in them - stock rims, and grow over 36 with more air in them.

Thanks!

Looks Awesome. Did you, or could you get a measurement of the height, mounted on truck with what air pressure you have in them, Front is good.. Please... thanks !!! Just wondering for comparison with the Ridge Grapplers and R/T`s

Took it back and they said the tire pressure was off, i told him you better go drive it. He called back a...

Thuren has 1/2" list front coils of 1.5" front coils, basically he offers both for those that want stock type rake, and those that want to level truck. Its on his PW full kits you can pick which one when you build your system.
