Re: Nokian WR G3 SUV

I have a set of the Rotiiva (1000 miles) so far they have been good. On road is great, dirt roads (fire roads) have been good too. Haven't had a chance to really test them in the snow yet however.

Here is a picture of my jeep with the new tires. I am a little disappointed that there isn't any rim protection but besides that they have been like glue on wet roads since I put them on.

Is there anyway to set the WK2 with ORII to automatically go to the exit height when the Jeep is put in park? Parents bought a 2013 and they are a bit older the the lower height would help them.
