    Stupid question probably but is there any decent tire in between 35" and 37"? I did so e googling but only found swampers.

    I pulled the trigger on some tires finally. Ended up going with the Yokohama Geolandar G003 in 35x12.5r17. Love how aggressive the side wall is. So far it drives pretty well behaved. Didn’t feel any unstableness yet from the tire feeling too soft like the KM3’s felt in highway driving.

    Never been a huge Yokohama fan but those tires do look good.

    That looks great, Phil.

    For a second I thought you even put on 37s!

    Looking forward to your thoughts after a few hundred miles.

    Did you notice a big difference going to E rated tires? Do you run same pressures as stock?

    Honestly, with this pandemic and now teleworking the last month I haven’t done much driving. The little driving I have done (120 miles) they feel much more grippy. Like, they grip into the concrete a lot more. I haven’t really “gunned” it yet. And the MPG’s so far is negligible. With stock I was getting 17.2 mpg and at 17 right now.
