Just Ordered New Tires!!

I just ordered the Pro Comp All Terrains!!! There like 32.7". I hope they fit! Buy 3 get 1 free. I'm going on Monday 2 pick them up. I'm so excited.

Does anybody know how much is it to get the speedometer recallibrated at the Ford dealer? There not in till monday.

recalibrated? There goes your excuse for speeding! I've had 3 different cops buy my "I just bought tires and didn't know they screwed up the speedometer" excuse.. milk it for all it's worth, cops don't give breaks often.. (of course it might be different for girls.. )

edit: as for the answer, superlift makes a tire calibrator for about a bill fifty and a chip/programmer from bamachips will correct it also. I've heard of dealers charging $50+ and only being able to compensate up to 31's, but I have no first-hand experience.

I ordered the same size tires for my ranger. 4wheel parts has the deal with buy 3 get 1 free. Im running a 3" spindle up front and a rear lift block off an edge and the tires clear, but comes pretty close. You may need to crank of the t's or trim some of the valence.

we did some measuring and it looks like a little bit of the inner flare on towards the rear of the front tires will need to be trimmed and a little on the bottem of the front bumper...

some fellar on ORR has/had 285/75/16s on his truck with a little crank so i feel that with a little trimmin and no crank they'll fit.

if they do, it'll be off-road and she dont really wheel it much so its all good...

looks like saturday they'll get mounted...
