On the trail, I used 16psi - mainly because I'm too lazy to mess with my deflators. Seemed to work very well - although the trails I road were very easy for the most part. Just a couple of hill climbs that were a little challenging. URE should be a better test to see how they do.

Running 43psi on the street for now, till I get a chance to chalk them.

I still am loving mine. The up hill and side ways traction are unparalelled. I have run most 4x4 tires of the upper eschalon brands. The 255/8017 km2s are the most versatile I've had yet. I was worried about quick tread wear, and uncomfortable driving habits, and the wobble over time. They do need to be balance every rotation, and they need to be rotated every 2500 instead of the suggested 5000. Discount tire rotates all 5 of mine every 2500 and rebalances them all. I am at 20,000 ish and they are over 5/8s tread left super happy with them. I run mine at 40 on the road, and at 15 on the trail.

Not sure I'll have the commitment to have 'em rotated every 2500 miles, but I'll certainly try to have it done every oil change at 5k. If I get 25-30k out of them, I'll be thrilled.

Yeah - I've got my stock wheels with P rated 265's sitting in the garage too. Problem is, with the shorter 265 and my 4.56 gears, it would be screaming on the highway.....

Nick you wheel too often to swap out tires anyway. You are out 2-3 times a month.

As long as you keep your wheels shiney.

I still pressure wash the mud and dirt off the under side. I guess I keep the cab spick and span too.

I drive through the car wash when I get home, since it has the pressure washer that gets underneath. It gets most of the mud off. On really muddy days, I'll sometimes go to the "do it yourself" car wash that has the pressure washer, just for getting the mud out of the crevices.

Did I mention I HATE MUD!!??

use a lawn sprinkler that sprays on the rainbow pattern...just slide it under the truck and walk away...it will loosen the dirt and be easier to clean...

People can tell when you Autobell brother(s)

And right now the under-body wash is included with anything above the SuperPoly Process (Ext Special too)

And don't forget you can always add it to any wash package for a mere $3:00

Get a pressure washer. I use it a lot more than I thought I would. Money well spent.

I had one. Seized the motor after the first year pale

But I honestly can't power wash my truck at my house. I have an alley driveway that's on an incline. All of the mud ends up in the alley. I found that out the one time I didn't clean it, and got some good rain.

They did great - although tough to compare since the conditions were very dry. I don't think they spun at all till I got high centered on the top of Daniel Shocked
