Point well taken. i have filled out my bio section. I have 15" factory rims and am still on the original tires. They are 235 75/r15. I live on a dirt road that at present time is an ice slick. i drive the Bronco on alot of dirt and state forest roads, but i also drive a fair amount of highway to get there. I also tow a boat in the summer with it. I am looking to walk that thin line between off road and on road. I am thinking about going with a larger tire, but am not sure if that is a good idea. I am worried about road noise if I go with too wide of a tire and am wondering about speedometer accuracy if I go larger.
i don't want to go radical with the tires just improve the stance of my Bronco and gain a little extra clearance.
I have 31-10.5-15 on mine stock suspension I don't plan on much off-roading I use mine more on pavement (unfortunatly)!
But It does affect my spedo. alittle about 5 or 6 mph at 60. It may have given me a inch or so lift but I can't really tell. Right now I am in the process of engine swap. the next set of meats I get will be 31's too. It seems to fill that awful gap in the well. I don't get too much road noise. If you don't want road noise don't get an aggressive tread. Or put the 44's on and drive over people--haha!!
Backyard Builder-If I ain't drivin it I'm under it!
How can you not love that hummmm??????!!? I hate my 39's because they don't hum loud enough! (It's actually kinda funny when you see a jogger five blocks in front of you turn to look behind him to see what the hell is so damn loud)
Thanks guys. I have another question. If the speedometer is going t be off won't the odometer be off as well? I had a guy today tell me that it would not, but i thought they both worked off of the drive shaft.
notoj: I don't plan on a lift kit.
Broncosaurus: I would not mind the noise so much if it wouldn't drown out my Lynard Skynard CD. Although if my wife is in the truck it could be a plus.
