Thanks bud. Yeah a little at full lock but that's it. I'm thinking of going 295/70/17 MTs after this set wears out but i'm sure they would rub worse. Could alleviate that with Kings and UCAs though.
Still what's in my sig. 295/70/17 and Bilstein 5100s at max ride height, so 1.8" or so. Have headers in storage waiting for warranty to expire, morimotos and Rigid lights that i've neglected for years i'm about to install. Wish i'd have gone ahead and upgraded to Bajakit's chase kit. New UCAs, Kings, and Deaver leafs would've been nice. Buddy of mine in my dental class likes to go on wheeling trips so might be doing that come our two week break in May.
Was surprised the RTs got me out of this, still impressed by these tires. Running em at 30 PSI. Went to go get a doe down a turn road surrounding a flooded rice field that was pretty much rotten. It got sketchy at times. I should've taken pictures of the ruts left behind, they looked like tractor ruts. This pic doesn't show it cause it was at the end on higher ground. Oh side note i need fender flares.
Such an awesome video. Just thought i'd share.
Traction mainly. The RTs aired up don't really work that great in mud. Airing them down really allows those shoulder lugs to be of use. I saw it on a review and normally wouldn't think it meant that much but having been in some of the mud here between both pressures it seems to work. I don't have to spend them so much in the 25-30 range like i do in the 40 range.
They do slightly rub, least on my truck but it's at full lock both ways. I don't have a tape measure here but am going home this weekend and can get you a measurement. I've been running them at 40PSI for nearly a month since the last tire rotation because i'm in Jackson now at the medical center. I'll get off for the holidays and air them down to 30ish and run em like that for most of december. Thanks man i wish i could've kept it going longer. I started school and everything has come to a halt. I find out if i'm in Dental School on the first. Still haven't put the headers on. Though i'm almost 100% positive i'm going to do it over christmas break. Since i got the the city my mileage has taken a serious beating. 11-13mpg in town and 15-16 on the highway at 70ish. This is with premium too. I might get slightly better with pure gas.
Gotcha sorry for the late reply i couldn't find this thread after the transition to the new site. CEL went away after a day or so. Everything seems fine. Probably still let the local dealer look at it over the holiday.
Was heading back to jackson yesterday when i was passing someone on 49 and had an extremely harsh shift. CEL came on, remote start doesn't work anymore, everything else seems to be fine. I gotta take it in to let them look at it, but has anyone had something similar happen to them? Is there a way for me to look at the codes to see what the error is?
Pretty sure the 6112s are the same height as the 5100s. 1.8" If you're wanting more with a an actual shock lift i'd honestly just skip the 6112s and go grab some kings. You're nearly there in price anyway. And you can have anywhere from 0-2.5" of lift, at the expense of rid quality of course, but it would be level.
I'd delete the resonator. I love how mine sounds warm start but it's hardly noticeable during daily driving, and mildly noticeable when you stomp it. I want it a little more loud with more growl. Res delete seems to do that. I'd only delete the flapper if you're going to disable AFM.
That's not to discount from the tire though. It's a phenomenal tire, just have to run it low which i do. I could get better MPG if i ran 40+ PSI but i wont do it. Rides worse and the shoulder lugs don't make contact very well in mud/dirt. Lets be frank these trucks are in dire need of a tune from the moment they get off the production floor. GM tunes them like they're catering to 75 year olds nearing retirement. Once you free up the power a little with a tune and maybe some bolt-ons, MPG is not that bad. I say this on the basis of my cousin running his 295/70r17 Toyo MTs in his BB tuned 09 vortec and has bested me in mpg before i even got my RTs. The other side is just that Toyo builds a tough heavy tire. I knew that going in, there is a reason Toyo is usually first in ratings for tread wear warranty, that comes with a price. Lastly moving from a 31" tire to a 33.5" tire especially with more aggressive tread, which is literally anything. The SR-A these trucks come with is the most useless truck tire i've come across. It's just a compromise really. Don't get me wrong i wish i got better MPG at times, but i like i've said several times in this thread. I'm driving a 5000lb+ 4WD truck just 1/2 an inch away from 34" tires with decent ground clearance, it ain't gonna happen. And that ladies and gentlemen is how i justified the need for headers and the want for a cam...lol
