New Shoes

Post by ramv » Sat Nov 04, 2017 10:28 pm

Will get pics tomorrow. Went 315/70R17 BFG AT KO2s on stock rims on my 2016 Laramie PW. Main reason for 315s over 35"s (nearly the same size according to BFG) is you can get emissions testing done in Colorado with 315s. 35"s kick you out. (need to install smaller rollers for the dyno testing.) Also, I figure as stock OEM replacement for H2 and Raptors, might be easier to find a roadside replacement. $280 each from Pep boys.

No noticeable difference in driving (other than my TPMS light is off.) I used the Procal to set the tire size to 34" to start. Will dial in.

The tires look very stockish for the size of the truck. When I put 315s on my 2nd Gen they looked huge in comparison.

Plenty of snow today in the mountains when I was out hiking and winter storm warnings for tomorrow, so I am happy to have the peak winter rating for my daily driver.

:nopics:


Another thing about the 315s vs the 35s is one of them (cant remember which one) is rated to fit on a wheels as skinny as 8” and the other is 8.5”. So, depending on where you go to get the tires mounted, that could be a deal breaker too.

good point on the wheels too, these are rated for 8" wide as opposed to 35"s.

33.25" Seems to be about perfect setting on the Procal. 33.5" was off by ~ 1mph
