Question

ok i just started looking around and i want to get some agressive tires and get some nice wheels with them but i want to be able to swap them out with the stock wheel/tires what would be a good idea for that i really want an aggressive tread but i don't want to get a bigger tire and don't want to mess with recalibrating the computer and everything.

i kinda like these

but i don't know what the tire size of the stock ones are and i don't know how far off that size is i get confused since the sizing is written differently

cant have your cake and eat it too. the only way youll be able to keep the speedo acurate with both sets is to get a programmer. Mileage will suffer with the bigger tires, only way around that really is gear swap, which will kill your mileage with the stockers on.

if the speedo is wrong, the odo is wrong. mine is off by 2 tenths of a mile, so for every mile i travel, it only puts .8 on the odo.

Yea don't get a 28" tire Super Swamper.

If you want a more aggressive tire you will have to go up a lil in size and that means that your speedo will be off. A dealer can readjust your speedometer, just gotta find the one that can. But without a programmer you can't just get a bigger tire and want to swap back and forth between stock.
