Post #:12 has the details of ride quality. I inflated them with normal air with 30psi all through. Atleast that comes for free anywhere and everywhere. There are a lot of conflicting views about nitrogen. Overall it seems that nitrogen doesn't make much difference.

I agree and had your post in mind before I embarked on this exercise. I initially tried with a pair of these tyres to check out the mechanical aspects. I came to a conclusion that I didn't need higher wheel arches and wider rims.

These fitted beautifully, were not protruding outside the vehicle body and also gave a meaner macho look. I also know about the speed and odo error. As it is, I mostly know how my truck behaves and I don't have to check out the mileage unless I undertake a major engine job.

Till then I'll chase all the nymphettes everywhere, riding on these tyres and scaring and crushing away errant suitors like you who come in between........

So now when you're doing 70 mph on the sppedo you'll actually be doing 74.29 mph & your odo will also have a corresponding odo-error too.

wow these look wicked
even in repose they look about ready to tear up the tarmac!

since the original scorp tyres are 235/70/R 16 Tubeless, please tell me have these new ones made a difference in feel?

I would have thought that while these are capable of taking you comfortably off road, they would cause the steering to be tighter and affect ride quality on road since they are 265 size.

please do let me know

The orginal stock tyres in my Scorp GLx of 2004 vintage were Bridgestone Dueler 235x70 R 15 H/T tubed. The new Dueler is A/T - 31x10.50 R15LT 6PR tubeless.

The ride quality till now is great and actually the steering is lighter and softer. The truck seems to be gliding on the roads. Because of the deep treads, most of the noise has vanished.
