    Thanks, no 265/70/17...there about 32”
    I compared them to KO2 275/70/17 at Discount tire, almost can’t tell size difference.
    A lot of good reviews on the STT Pros.

    Removed the mud flaps before I put them on, Still rubbed a little With Xreas.

    Good clearance with Bilstein set up

    Just installed Black Spidertrax all around, had some rubbing on fwd wheel well plastic, easy fix!

    Drove it on the freeway for the first time today, didn’t have any shaking at 80mph.

    Read several ppl having shaking issues at lower speeds, ended up just cleaning disks with wire brush, attached all nuts hand tight, then torqued at 50 ft all around in star pattern, then moved to 90 ft in star pattern and then a full circle at 90 again...the reason I did it that way is because it’s a similar procedure on aircraft props (I’m an aircraft mechanic). Too easy to get things out of balance, especially going from hand tight to 90 ft lbs. right off.15E7A9F5-CAEC-46AE-A201-7D56AECE0319.jpg

    I’ll get before and after pictures up asap

    Did our first road trip up to Big Sur...got the 4R leveled for the most part, not 100% but Very close.

    Pictures are from Coast drive (or Old Coast Drive) 10 miles from start to finish through Big Sur, CA

    I know this is an old post, but what did you set the 6112’s at to get close to level?

    If your going for the fenders level look then 6L/4R or 5/3 will both be close...I did 5/4 and it had driver side lean, follow the directions Bilstein gives. This is with stock rear springs.

    (FRAME LEVEL)
    I change it and bought 2" Icons for the rear and put both front clips on 6 with a 1/4 shim on driver....pretty level. Also a 1/4 Shim driver rear.
