Re: Anyone riding Dueler Revo's?

I don't see 245/65's either but they do have them in 255/65's.

That would make your speedo read way out as there is a 5.2% difference in diameter going from (stock 245/65) 29.54" to a much larger (with the 255/70) 31.06"

If you go wider you need to decrease depth ie. 255/60 will give you a 1.6% real change in diameter (29.05")

We are talking either 255/65 or 245/70 not 255/70!

Re: Anyone riding Dueler Revo's?

So it looks like 255/65 is the way to go if you dont want too much power loss?
