If you have studded your truck and your HGs are good you don't really have to worry about blowin' your HGs. And yes, in some cases it's the best for your truck to be studded dependin' on HP, etc. You could get an SCT with custom tunes and whomever you get to tune it will tune it based on if you have a studded truck or not or whatever else mods you have or don't have.

With the custom tuning, they write tunes based on what you have done. As long as you aren't running a huge race file you should be okay without studs, but if you are able it is a good idea to get the studs. I ran for a year with a Banks 6 Gun turned all the way up before I had any problems.
