i should also add, they rub on the front sway bar and the plastic flap on the passenger side. the one that isn't on the driver side. i can remove that lame piece of plastic right?

as for the SCT, i can't seem to find the tire adjustment option and i've read a couple links online that say i have to take it to the dealer and let them recalibrate my speedo. is this true or can any of you SCT owners chime in and help me?

thanks kris, can you help with my calibration issue? i looked through 5 pages on google and most were stang guys or diesel guys. there was also f150 owners that had issues w/ traction control after installing a leveling kit and anything larger then 33's.

the only thing i did find was something about using the rev's/minute and it doesn't change it. the dealer has to.

Your SCT should have a function that let's you adjust for tire size. Change that to the appropriate size and it will be corrected. If it doesn't the next best option would be your local Ford dealer. I know for a fact they can adjust it. I was charged half an hour labor. Beats buying another tuner or programmer.

the manual for it says it's under "preloaded tuning" and "adjust user parameters". i'll take a better look tomorrow in the daytime.

I figured it could adjust for it. I know even my Superchips one could. I must be half asleep because I missed the part that said you couldn't find the function. Glad you found it though.

Looks great! Tire size adjustment is done before you load a tune. When you go to load a tune and click the one you want to being to load it a prompt will come up and ask if you want to make any adjustments or something like that. You click yes and then you'll see you can adjust things like axle ratio, tire revs per mile, shift points, shift pressure, idle speed, etc. Then you have to load the tune to the truck

ok, so i'd have to get ahold of my tuning person and have him do something for me? or could i load the stock one, change the size and then go back to one of the tunes i was given?

to those who are curious about size and brand, they are goodyear duratracs and 265/75R16

No, you can do it all yourself. You need to go and reflash your truck again with whatever tune is on it now. In the process up uploading the tune it will give you the option to make the adjustments yourself, before it actually uploads the tune to the truck.

surprised to hear they rub, i thought a 285/75/16 was pushing the limits. the newer ones are maybe different I guess.

Looks awesome though. aggressive tires on stock wheels really look good to me.

they work great. i plucked some guys in a econoline who turned around in a field and got stuck. the grass was wet but they still dug pretty good. it was pretty funny really.
they were either muslim or lebanese and were like "you look like you've done this before" as i pulled out my strap and clevis'. then i was offered to "come and see me, you won't pay above cost on furniture". epic. they also clean mud really well.

as for the rain, excellent. there are a couple spots that the wrangler r/s' would have lost it and these didn't even flinch.

great investment and i highly recommend them to anyone looking for an AT at a great price.

Just put a set of Duratracs on my truck a couple of months ago. Awesome tire.
You'll love them.
