Just had a set of Carve 20" rims installed with 275/55 Michelin LTX M/S tires. They look great and the truck handles alot better but I have a few questions.

The dealer had 35psi in all four tires so I assume this is the factory recommended pressure but they did not change the sticker on the door jam to reflect this. The stock tires were 18" styled steel with 30psi/33psi F/R so why are my new tires inflated with the same pressure 35/35 front and rear?

I called the dealer to confim that 35/35 was the recommended pressure and they told me the recommended pressure was indicated on the tires but when I checked they only listed the MAX pressure.

Normally I run the factory recommended pressure but in this case I'm not sure what it is. I know some Tundra's come factory equipped with 20's so If you got one could you please check your door jam and post the info.

Thanks

Well, I didn't post pics cause we had a huge snowstorm yesterday and my truck is filthy but if you insist.

Here are some crappy pics of my dirty rims. I will post some better pics when I get a chance to wash the truck.

The 250 was mine before it was her's. I found a great deal on the 450 and needed the power to keep up with my buddies. I did like how agile the 250 was, but I am getting just as good at throwin around that 450.

Looks really nice. Unless some aftermarket companies start steppin it up, I think ill go with those also. Did you get them from your local dealer and if so, how much did they run?

DIRTY!!?? You call that dirty? I'd stick with the 35 PSI and bump the rears up when haulin'. Just my opinion. Nice wheels.

Thanks, wonder why the dealer used 35psi? Oh well, I think I'll stick with 35 for now.

I got everything from the dealer except the tires. They wanted $280.00 each, I laughed. Got them at tire rack for $210.00. I attached a pic of the cost breakdown. The best part of all, the wife didn't even notice! :D

Sandcruiser
Slate Metallic

Next on the list is a tonneu cover, then some fog lights, then an in-dash NAV system, then..........Wait a second, you guys don't think I have some sort of "modding" problem do ya?

Awesome, thanks for the info. Im surprised switching over the tire pressure monitors wasnt more expensive.

Edit: Nevermind, didnt read it right, still not too bad.

Did they give you anything for your stockers or are you selling elsewhere?

Nice wheels...:tu:
Not hijacking your thread, Since there isn't much to choose from in aftermarket wheels for a little while, I went with the BBS wheels and 275/60R20 Michelin LTX tires to fill up those huge wheel wells. Here's some pic's..

They did not want the stock rims/tires so If anyone is interested I have them for sale. They are the 18" styled steel rims with Bridgestone Dueler tires. TPMS sensors are still installed. I have about 2000 miles on them.

Nice! Are you going to have the dealer recalibrate you speedo for those larger tires? btw, what tire pressure are you running?

I see you also went with LTX M/S tires. I think they are the best all around tire made. Had a set on my Tacoma that lasted over 80000 miles.

What did they charge you for the new set of tire pressure monitors? I have heard they cost over $100 each...
