My truck is still running on the original Uniroyal Tiger Paw tires.
They only have 8600 miles, but they are 11 years old now, and are all cracked and leaking...

Which brings me to the next question:

What is a good tire to run on? :)

I'm running on new Goodyear Alegra tires. They're a good high pressure tire. They say max pressure is 44psi but I'm running at 50 and they are still comfortable on the ride. Also, Sams has them priced pretty good.

I changed the rims out on mine ,I am now running chrome 16 inch Cadilac Catera rims and a 225/70 /16 inch tire they are Goodyears but not sure of the model .It throws the speedo off by 3 mph and the odometer by one mile per 25 miles . But it sure looks good . Laughing

If you remove the back panel on your controllers, you can change the speed pulse divisor, there are 10 dip switches that set it:
