    They area really true to their size thats for sure. It is one big beast now. Some of you were following my progress on the shackle flip and other things lately and thought to inform you if you havent read the posts in the PNWFS4X4 area. Pics are posted on my main website not the club site

    Well with 42's you cant balance them like a regular tire due to the distance from the weight to the outside of the tire so you put equal in them about 8 ounces and let it ride. They ride well I can let go of the steering wheel and it track straight. That size of tire absorbs everything. I can hardly feel speed bumps. Only thing a bit nerve racking is an occasional tremor through out the truck. It starts build like and earthquake then fades out. I guess according to my tachs the tires still need to seat themselves on the bead and will do this for awhile. They are also at 30 psi for about a week to seat the bead.
