Fat tires on a 4 banger without regearing works! (PICS added finally)

Yesterday I had Kumho Road Venture MT's 305/70/16 (33") installed. They replaced the same Kumho's that were on there that were 265/75/16's (32").

I'm glad to say I could not notice any differance in how the truck accelerates compaired to the 32's that were on there.

3" lift, no body mount or plastic rub (after plastic trimimg) with no regear needed.

Since OP's not ponying up any pics:



285/70R17.

Feels just a touch more sluggish, but no complaints.

How are the Road Venture MTs? I've been after a good personal review of them but they're hard to find.

Holy crap bjmoose. That's sick! I love regular cabs and this is one of the best 4WD's I've seen yet. Great job bro. I want to trade my JK for one just like this now I think the OWL looks great BTW.

I will put up pics next Sunday. I'm holding off on taking pics till I install my ICON's and maybe a tonneau cover.

I did a 200 mile round trip today and didn't see a change in mileage, though I'm sure it's probablly a hair less. You have to remember I already had 32's on it. It seemed to have the same acceleration as with the 32's.

And who the hell called my truck a Prerunner? LOL
