Talk about a ride difference !

A couple weeks ago I had started the transformation to go all out travel and kind of copy Dan at Carli's rig so I ordered up a boat load of Carli goodies including their custom radius arms. Well in talking to a couple guys at CJC offroad and SoCal supertrucks a few of the guys said I need to work on my tire to wheel ratio so I ditched the 20s on 35s and went to 17s on 35s pretty much the smallest wheel to clear the caliper and I brought my scale too !!

The fuel maverick 20x10 with 35 inch toyo weights in at 114.8 pounds per tire and wheel assy fully aired up

The cheapo Eagle alloys with 35 inch toyo weights in at 95.7 pounds per tire and wheel assy fully aired up

Took it for a decently quick run down a local wash board logging road and the more tire gives a huge improvement in ride quality offroad running em at 50 front and 40 rear I know it all makes perfect sense but I was shocked so I figured id share

BEFORE with 20s


AFTER with 17s

Looked a million times better with the old setup. But if you like it, then that's all that matters. Congrats on the new setup! Glad it worked out for ya.

So lowering the tire pressure will improve ride quality? Is it safe?

I have had no issues running Toyo tires down to 38 psi on the street!

I think Don is having enough fun with the Dodges! You will be more than pleased with how the Carli system rides.

Let us know when you find out if/how much the fuel mileage changes...

Personally, I'm preferential to the old set up, for obvious reasons
