I got mine installed yesterday and I know they reccomend a 500 mile break in which my mechanic/next door neighbor though was bull so I got into it and damn it works. First test was one wheel on dirt passenger other on pavement driver and got moving like a mofo. Put both on pavement and left two very wide marks. Even though its a 2002 all the guys who said it will work for me your great I love having this forum to run to with a question. Ive 295/50-15s and that lil 2.2 and a clutch drop = fun.

The reason he says that is becuase its all gears and that its already using the exisiting gears theres nothing to really wear in. Unlike a posi with clutches or springs they have to wear a certain period of face instant destruction. Hey for 20 bucks it took him half an hour and the funny thing is he was able to do it without even getting dirty.

with the grey block they used to only have to be ground on the 4.10, but the newer one's come with a black block which is larger and needs to be ground with 3.73's and 4.10's. kinda a large tire for that isn't it?

its the exact same height as the stockers just a whole lotta wider. both tires sit just about 26.6 inches tall. the stock is 26.3 so no they arent hardly taller not that you can see side by side just both are wider front a few inches and the back a whole lotta inches it improves the twisty roads a ton.

I loved my 295/50/16's on my truck
they look so badass
I wanna get them again but I need to raise my truck back up to do it
so the question is be low with 245/50's (maybe some 265/50's)
or rasie it back up a little and run 295/50/16

What brand tire were your 295/50/16's? I want something wider than my 255's but the widest I could find at any of the stores was 255.
