Not sure who you are directing the question at, but I am running 33x12.5x15 HT's on 15x8J -40 offset rims at around 2bar pressure as anything above that causes the tyre to stand with a bulge in the center of the tread.

Think he is asking DaleB....(?)

I have before heard of issues with certain brands of tyres pulling to one side...

I con my Sani into running more "true" by running 2.2bar on the left front and 1.9bar on the right :rolling:

Im running with Maxxis Muds 285/75/17. Been doing this since new. run 2 bar pressures front and back pretty much all the time unless I am doing a long "high speed" tar run loaded.

What I was considering is to machine a spacer for the left radius arm to push it forward about 5-10mm. on the last wheel alignment printout I had the diffs where not quite parallel but were well within spec. Lost the printout... can't remember by how much.

The suspension change made this much worse but I did the tires on the same day...?

Ah, muddies...

Just rotate the tires left to right and see if it makes any difference?

Hi Peter, tried that a few times, well actually tried a few different rotation patterns. I got no joy.

I think I will redo alignment and get some spacers machined, will do at my next rotation... always a waste of time sitting there for hours...
