New shoes! 32x11.5 - stock suspension

Well I had some financial set backs this year. But thanks in part to the "stimulus package" earlier in the year, I was able to take the portition I set aside for myself, and buy the wheels new from summit racing. Took me a while, but I FINALLY got a set of tires and had them mounted / balanced.

Fortunately I was able to find out that the brake calipers run close to the rim! So I made sure the shop that balanced them put the weights in the proper areas.

Also, I bought some zoop to help protect the bare rims for the winter time salt. Still need to clean and apply it here pretty soon.


Here is a WEB PAGE with several pics and a short description.

I'm thinking that a good posibility!



04BlackFX4, it's all stock *except* for a 1.75 crank on the T-bar screws. I did that quite a while back to get the truck more level.

OH btw... just some random info. (actual measurements I carefully took)

Stock tire/wheel:
weight @ 42k miles = 53lbs
circumference = 93.75" = 682 revs per mile


32.5x11 @ 7k miles & Alcoa level 2 wheel = 59lbs

32.5x11 @ 7k miles & MT Classic II 15x8 wheels = 58lbs
circumference = 97.75 = 656 revs per mile

That was on the stock tires. These are not much heavier and are not much taller. So I'd expect to only drop a 1/10 or maybe two at the most because of them. Next summer I fully expect to be running 14.6-14.7 (on a 60shot)

yeah, maybe the lower 60' times will equate to a faster ET.
Your first 60' will really make a difference

or launch it in 4wd, jk don't do that

I won't know until I try. Right now I'm running a 87 tune and it'll spin them. But not as much as the stockers. One thing I have noticed is that these things will squeel where as the stockers just made a scuffing noise.

btw, it didn't raise the truck too much. Only about 3/4 of an inch. But now my wife wants me to put the nurf bars back on.
