tire revs? and srl

hey guys maybe a stupid question but how many revs would 33x12.5x20 tires put out? asking this because I just loaded srl up on the truck and I've seen where some people have said this needs to be delt with. also what about the break in period with the srl? how long?

thanks

A 33" tire will get you approx. 621 revolutions per mile.

You'll have to match both values in the SCT though, so 620 will do for both.

By both, I mean the REVs in the SCT device AND the SRL tune.

Both are adjustable and folks have problems because they don't adjust both, just one or the other.

You really should measure them using the chalk procedure. The published revs per mile are accurate for a new and unloaded tire - and don't incorporate tread wear, inflation pressure, and vehicle weight.

When you select custom tune from the menu, it will ask you if you want to change the tire revs for speedometer calibration... That's the SCT REV adjustment.

Then you select which tune you want and it will ask you is you want to "adjust user options;" that's the SRL REV adjustment.

The year of the truck doesn't matter.

Also, like someone else talked about the "chalk method..." Rest assured that is the procedure I did to get the REVs of 620.

Good Luck!

It should say "Recalibrate Speedometer."

Try updating the firmware on the SCT. Make sure you return the truck to stock first then do the firmware update.

When I get new tunes I measure out the tire revs first and ask them to use that measurement.

Your SCT software has the function to check the firmware.
