You should have ordered 265's not 235's. I read in your profile you're trying to make an "FX2". Can't do it with 28" tires man...
I thought about upsizing the tires, but then I would have had to drop $400 for a programmer. I need a clutch and tires for my T/A ($2200) so, had to keep it low. I got them at Sams. $409 mounted balanced road hazard and tax. Not to bad
I am also considering a V-8 swap in the future, part of that will be a 31 spline torsien rear and some 31's.
I got 62k out of mine cause I drive 100 highway miles a day back and forth to work. needless to say me and Hess see a lot of each other, even at 21.5mpg $375 a month

[QUOTE=l2en]I had 245's on mine stock. I replaced with 265's. I gps'd my truck and had it clocked by a pennsylvania state trooper buddy. The numbers they gave were identical to the speedometer in my truck.
Same exact thing happened to me..
245's stock.. replaced with 265's and the speedo is now more accurate.
My ranger had the stock tires with only 32K on them, and they where about 3/4 way worn. I just put some Uniroyal Liberator A/T P255/70R16 on my ranger, and I love them. Hopefully I get some good life out of them. If I get the same miles that you got on our stockers I won't complain one bit.
I have these tires they are great for the road I have lost traction only once and that was because of my stupidity. Off road they are alright. I have only gotten stuck once but that was a clearance issue not grip issue.
I had stock 245's and i put 265's on it and there right on with teh speed? We have one of them speed trailer thingys on my road and i drove by it 2 or 3 times just to double check and its right on the money!
I've had these tires on my truck for about 35K miles now, going on 36K. P225/70/R15. While I'm sure there a better tire for heavier vehicles, my truck constantly spins out in the rain even when i'm only simply taking off under light to moderate acceleration. I still got plenty of tread left but lincoln's head is starting to clue me in, i'll need new tires before this upcoming winter. My LS rearend don't help me out much either.
I'll stick with an AT tire but i'm not too picky on brand. Not sure with what i'll go with next. Good luck with your tires man! hope they work out for you! -Mike-
