Default 32's coming soon. have some questions.

i finally have to money saved so im going to be getting some 32/11.5r15 tires soon and just have a few questions. i really wanted to get some bfg's but those things cost a pretty penny so ive been looking around at other brands and so far im leaning towards the kumho Road Venture AT KL78 because they are a pretty good amount cheaper click and wanted to know what other people thought about these tires as for quality, durability, how long they last and what not and was wondering if anyone has run them on their truck. would these be a good investment or should i just suck it up and get the bfg's? or something else.

also i want to get my speedometer adjusted for the larger tires. ive called several tire shops and off road supply stores and even several dealerships and no one has has an idea where to do it. im sitting here thinking so many people have put larger tires on their trucks they cant all be driving around with off speedometers could they? so yeah does anyone have any suggestions as to how to go about this.

thanks in advance.

you can reset your speedo with a programmer, but i do believe we sold some of those tires before, they seemed pretty good

superlift makes a speedo correction module to adjust for oversize tires but the last time i saw it was pretty expensive. a tuner will also recalibrate it also.

Get the general grabber AT2s if they have them in a 32, almost same pattern as a BFG. Main difference is the BFG sidewall is 3 ply where as the General is 2 ply so no biggie

I erased everything on my computer on accident so the dealership by me had to manually enter everything in and they changed in the tire size for me. So they would need to do a complete reprogram and 180$ later, my speedometer isn't off

Have you tracked your speed with a GPS? My stock speedometer was reading fast, once I put my 32s on it became spot on according to my GPS.

$200+ ouch. thats a little more then i wanna spend. whats the deal with tuners and programmers and stuff? is that something that use have to install and leave in your truck or could i just find someone that has one and use theirs real quick.

i looked at them but they only have 32's with 16" rims. its not really a big deal cause im getting new rims too but i just like 15's better.

i dont own a gps, so no. but when i drive by those speedometers that they have by schools its usually a couple mph off.


i dont care really so much about the speed being off. im really more concerned about the odometer.
