What about 275-40-18.. and 365-35-18

And does anyone know how to do the free mod for the wiper blades. (lowering them?)
I read about it but I dont know what to do to make them lower after I take them off...

i found out from my boss at work some tires have a lil triangle on the side wall near the tread. He was tellin me that the tip of that triangle is suppose to touch the ground when the tire is properly inflated. I found the triangle on my nittos, i havent had a chance to check it out yet. Has anyone else hard of this?

damn thats kinda high aint it... i bet it spins like hell when you get on it... i have always ran 35 in every thing of mine
for some reason when there is any less pressure than that i can push on the tires and they will flex...but with that pressure before the supercharger they wouldnt spin at all even with full bolt ons...but they'll still catch alright in second with the blower

If you push on one spot ur creating a good amount of pressure in that one small area under ur finger. the amount of tire on the ground would be much larger and require less are to be stiff. You will likely benefit from a decrease on pressure.

You are gonna wear your tires VERY badly at 48psi. What size are they? REar your owners manual or door sticker and see what they should be ran at! When you over inflate tires the center of the tread will wear and when you under inflate them (anything below 32) the center with actually LIFT and NOT have much contact the ground with radial tires and the outside of the tread will wear. If you want proper information you need to go to a tire specialist and ask.

The owners manual doesnt give tire pressures for larger tires and the recommendation for the stock size is 30 psi so why are you sayin anythin below 32 is bad?

ok 30 is fine but when the tires get hot they're gonna be about 32, 33... and no **** its not gonna tell you for bigger wheels? but it gives u an idea and you bump it up a little bit so u dont get impact breaks... if u have a tire at 48psi and it get hot enough you will be exceeding 51psi tyhast doesnt mean it will blow up but your gonna get bad wear. and poor traction. the reason i lower profile tire has such a high max psi rating is for load reasons.
