I had cut a tire on the freeway and am going to have to replace it. I bought my '06 Tundra 4x4 with LSD with about 8k miles on it and it already had the Cooper Disc. ATRs that I've now put another 16k on. I've rotated them twice (going to try every 5-10k) and have about 11/32" of tread left. If I run the new Cooper ATR in the back will it cause any problems with the limited slip rear since it will be slightly taller? How much more tread will the new tire have? Is there a rotation pattern I should follow to help the new tire wear in to the rest. I know this sounds picky but this is my first 4x4 and first LSD and I don't want to do anything to cause any premature drivetrain wear. Common sense to me would suggest that you'd need to keep an eye on all your tire heights (wear, pressure, sizes) to make sure you don't have one side spinning faster that the other on straight runs. I know if I commuted through twisties everyday it'd be the same thing.......maybe I'm being paranoid? We have freight vehicles at work with limited slip rears that are burning them up pretty regularly and it seems to me to be because of running too long with uneven tire pressures. I don't get to work on these often enough so I still lack the experience there.
Any knowledge one can drop on my brain will be appreciated.
