I definitely notice more bump steer and following when traveling through cupped roadways. Going from smooth to rough back to smooth (ice/snow piles) is interesting, but controlled.Fofiddy wrote:So the ride quality is a little harsher cruising with the big tires when it comes to rough surfaces, (poor paving, frost heaves)?
I hit that same issue. I was all for giving the local (is 2hrs away local?) guy my business to support the small business man but after an already higher list price, shipping, tax + the rediculous drive it would be (horrible 2 lane local road that should be a 4 lane interstate) it wasn't worth it.ragpaoa wrote:Thought I could save a little on shipping, but the local shop charged me for shipping anyway.
Not stiff like 1 ton pickup with no load or poorly chosen lift stiff. But not the stock cushy floaty ride. Closer to how I feel a 1/2 ton pickup rides. You know your not in a car, but its not horrible. Which is how I expected the ride to be. If I get off road sometime I'll let you know how it goes.NVSteve wrote:You say that it's as bad as, say, Jeep stiff?
Hi Blink,blink32 wrote: If I were to do it all over again, I'd try one size smaller to eliminate a minor rubbing issue I still have. The fronts barely catch the front mud flap bumper gaurd dealie during certain turns. I'm not sure if I'm going to deal with it or trim teh gaurds later.
You can see all the pictures at THIS LINK that show detailed distances between the tire and the front guard on the front bumper/wheel well.Simon B wrote:Is the rubbing something you think you could stop by removing/trimming the mud flaps or is it rubbing on the wheelarch liner? Any advice/photos you could provide would be appreciated
