Re: What size of tire?

and maybe for him, its different...

but the WK... my setup is like 1% off and 3% off. i have no rubbing or issues of any kind....

when you put the specs for the SRT tires... most calculators say "parameters dont exist" or something to that extent...

so... i'm not worried about mine lol

Re: What size of tire?

ehh, im not sure if I believe that since all the tire calc sites say the same thing, that going over 3% and you run the risk of brake failure.

Re: What size of tire?

on some theres about 10-20% difference...

unless you have 4x4 then your "% off your stock" wont mean anything... only when its a 4x4 you need to worry about closeness to stock
have any newer pics with all of that?

no 4x4... if i did i think i would have a 4in lift with 305/50/20 tires



idk anything about this... i mostly learn everthing i do an know on here

Re: What size of tire?

well im sure when they get that work done they have to swap out brakes to make it safe. I mean Im just guessing but that makes sense

Re: What size of tire?

I think the whole brake issue is because you are changing the weight...

Its most likely more for just a liability to suggest you upgrade your brakes to stop your bigger, heavier wheels/tires setup.

Re: What size of tire?

thats because the sidewall height is a percentage of the width and height
