Re: 4.8 M/Terrains

Great,
Thanks For them feedback, I was thinking of 3 bar on the tar.
TyreShop reckons 2.4 but this is too low in my opinion.
What diameter exhaust have you got fitted?

So they're fitted,
AndThey look great in my opinion.
A slight whine on them highway, not overbearing, ride feels good, got a slight lift
now to test them out on them dirt, the tread is really aggressive so I am ambitious.
