It actually doesnt feel that bad. I mean I am hoping that eventually I can get some gears in it. Love it though and so worth it. Havent noticed anything huge in my mileage either.

These tires seem to ride good and smooth ( loud but thats expected) and feel great on the pavement and pretty good on ice. Still no fresh snow yet so no report on that.

BTW, what does that tire size convert to in inches?
315/75-16 works out to be 12.4 wide x 34.6 tall

315mm X 0.0393 inches per mm = 12.4inches wide x .75 (sidewall % of tread width) x2 sidewalls + 16inches of rim =34.6 inches tall x 3.14159 = 108.699" around (distance travelled per 1 rotation) /12 (inches per foot) 9.05 -9 (for removal of decimals) = .05 X 12 = .699, + 9 feet = 9'0.699" so 9 feet, 3/5ths of an inch around/distance travelled per 1 rotation

let me rephrase "i hope you have 4.10's" lol

i could keep working it out to tell you how far the truck will travel per rotation of the engine, but i don't think anyone would care...

truck looks sick though, gives it this total snow monster look

Badass good to see more people pushing the envelope and proving To the others that say it can't be done. Get some one inch wheel spacers and you won't have any rubbing in the front. I wheeled the crap out of my 99 with that setup and never had a problem rubbing hard except for the front part of the rear fender flare. My 03 with just the superlift and 315's never rubbed anywhere. I also support the paint your rims black idea.....
