wat gear was the tranny in. if its an auto u should prolly be able to be in 2nd gear, also deends on axle gears and tire size/kind.

for tire pressure it kinda depends ont he track. a good rule of thumb i always went by was hav roughly 10psi more in the the rear tires than the front.

wouldnt know. i never took my truck thru the mud. they look BA IMO. they hooked up very well ont he sled pulling track too, even the sandy ones. jus my .02 but dont EVER get the bias ply ones if u drive ont he road. mine where square in the mornings.. my first set was radials and they r well worth the extra money.

when i was seld pulling id get to the track b4 i let the air out, as i was kneeled down letting th air out u could watch the lugs ont he tires start sinking down int the bak and angleing the front up, kinda like a pulling tire..

ya im prolly gonna get those for the next tires. and ya i had the radials on my truck but previous to my stroker i had a 94 chevy 9 inches up on 37 irok radials. thats why it went in the mud. my stroker stays clean for the most part unless i get the occasional call to pull someone out
