I've been needing new tires, and since I went up a little bit more on my lift, about 3" total now, I think (OME 929's in the rear with torsion bars adjusted to level out the truck, plus ball joint flip and low profile bump stop) I decided I needed to fill the wheel wells up a bite more, too. I was running 31x10.5-15 BFG A/T's, and loved them, but I couldn't necessarily afford those in the 33x12.5 that I am going to. So I opted for the Pathfinder A/T's. Geez oh man, the size difference was significantly more than I anticipated, in a good way. No rubbing on the road, but I expect a little at full lock while flexing on the trail. Nothing a little trimming cant fix, lol. My truck now sits how I've always wanted it, and I have the ground clearance I've 'needed', for some of the rocky terrain I venture to here in north texas, (Northwest OHV Park & Hidden Falls)
I only have about 8 miles on these tires, and first impressions are good. I"m going to have to play with the tire pressures a bit, I think, but that's par for the course. My question to you all, Does anyone here have experience with these tires? If so, what are your opinions on them? My truck isn't my daily driver, more of a weekend toy, haul my race bikes to the track, crappy winter weather, or just to go camping, so i'm not concerned with poor fuel economy, road noise, or tread life less than 50K miles. I'd like to know about highway stability and trail worthiness, really.
Thanks in advance!!
Don't take life so seriously, it isn't permanent.
If all else fails, give it more gas. It may not solve the problem, but it will end the anticipation.
