Have you checked tire rack lately? Comparable a/ts on there are around 700 before mount and balance. I got mine for 550 mounted and balanced out the door.

Two had 2/32s others had maybe 1/32. 90% of the time I am granny shifting my truck, never did any burnouts(well maybe a couple the night before I got the new ones).

so with stock rims and backspace the 10.5 tire would only be flush with the fender? i was hoping for a little bit of poke with 31x10.5. so i'd have to either get 1.5" spacers or new rims with a different offset?

with a 10.5 inch tire you are still sucked in about an inch. Spacers or wheels with a different backspacing would make it sit flush.

Interesting. Is this the same thing with the FX4 stage 2 set up? I have the factory flares so I assumed that the tires were spaced a bit out already.,

It's the same setup. Level 2s come with a 7 inch wide wheel just like all rangers.

They put 65.5 LBS in them. They call for 80PSI max. What would you run on highway and what would you run in sand and rocks? I never air down but with these babies? I may want to.

35 max i'd run. 65 is way to high with my #1 bars and stiff shock bounce all around and bumps hurt
