Did it improve the ride quality? Looks a little tight on the rear wheel well, any issues with rubbing at all?

Just curious what was your main motivation to go to 19.5"

the rear end gear are too low ... the stock tires are too small

turn 2600 at 65 mph... my class was around 2000..

with the little tires the trans gear is wrong... over revs 3rd and not enough to pull 4th up the hill

with the stock tires pulling a 6% grade it over reved 3rd running 5000 rpm...50 mph

with the tire change... 53 mph @ 4000

the load rating is about 40% higher....

the tires are 120k mile tires

the fronts are perfect.. don't rub anywhere...

the rear are close on the plastic flare on one side,,

might have to take out the screws and move the flair in a tad

Specifications?

Sorry to revive a dead thread but, where did you get these from? This is something I've been considering but haven't had a lot of luck finding information.

Can you tell me, did you have to do any suspension modifications? What are the actual diameter of your tire and wheel choice?

Thanks!
Todd
