Ride is good, I need to recalibrate the suspension as I think it's set too high right now. I don't have a GAP tool so I had the shop do it at +63mm following some advice from this forum. I get the stability control intervening regularly on twisty mountain roads, I live in the mountains so basically constantly. The spare is in the back right now until I can get a new rear bumper and a carrier for it.

It would be nice if you could get some actual support on this product and instructions on how the suspension is supposed to be configured.

I think my GAP tool maxes my car out around +43 mm.


Riding constantly at the higher height for me introduced a very very slight vibration between 80-85 mph.

Lowering it down fixed it for me, plus the car rides better at the factory height.

If I were you I'd invest in an IID tool and play around with it a bit. I only bring my height up when I need to, but I'm only running 31" tires.

Looks great! Have you experienced any rubbing?
everyone running the 255/65s I've talked to said you need a lift, whether it be software or hardware. that and that fact that the spare won't fit is why I went with the 255/60s. It looks bad *** though.

I found the Duratracs
Nice! If you plan on off roading this beauty, don't go under 25 psi on rock gardens. The sidewall cuts like butter. Otherwise, these are fantastic tires.
Agree 100% on the sidewall on these. Had a sidewalk cut first time out on these a few years ago. Went with 18's to end that silliness.

After 6 sliced sidewalls, I went all-in with 17s on 255/70r17 KO2s. Close to oem size. I've done a lot tougher trails airing down to 25 up front and 30 on the rear, and I use the entire sidewall.

Yeah, I need to bite the bullet and do that. I've been busy with a massive home remodel and haven't wanted to spend the money on top of everything I'm already doing. Considering it cost about $5K (including new Arnotts all the way around) I shouldn't worry about a few hundred for it.
