Hey everyone! along with the edge juice w attitude and 5 inch exhaust system on my 03' Duramax, she also sports 285/75/16 BFG All Terrains...i dont want to switch them out just yet since they are brand new. But will i still get enough hook up in 4WD to pull a respectable distance? thanks:confused:

the bfg's are a excellent tire for traction in softer dirt but on a little harder dirt such as clay a softer tire such as the bridgestone dueller revo has better traction,but you should just fine on that tire.just my 2 cents$

The AT's are a great tire but i've had real good luck with 50% tread MTR's.

tell me they don't rub each other on the duals,or did you add wheel spacers.man that's wide tires for dauls.:cool:what happens in most cases when tires rub together on duals they heat up and KABBBOOOOM!!!

Yeah I run a 2 3/4in. spacer between the back tires. it sets them jsut outside the fenders and gives it a real good stance... i think you can see them pretty well in my garage pics.

Yeah i love the ATS tranny it was like picking up an extra couple hundred horse when i got it done. With the Co-Pilot you can adjust the shift strength so it still drives like a stocker if you want it to. I haven't had her dyno'd yet but my estimate would be around 600HP based on the beating that i have given some 500+ HP trucks in pulls. My eyes are set on dual CP3's, head studs and an aurora 5000. $$$$

The A5K with dual fueler's will have you right around your 600 HP #.

Truck setup is key, you can take a 400 hp truck and make 500+ trucks look silly if you can get all 400 of yours to the ground and they can't put what they have to use.

i had those dueller ats and they were terrible in mud and snow. I really liked the CT's when i was pushing snow. I also liked my BFG AT's too. But i really like these CT's.

I agree, my experience plowing snow is how i got started using the ct tires, they are awesome in deep snow!

I ran a few sets of cooper st tires aswell but they are a almost identical tire!
