I just put a set of 35x12.50's on 20x10's on my rebel. The rims have -24 offset and only run at full lock, turning the wheel left. I'm gonna put a rivet in the fender well to hold it back.

I used the suspension mod to achieve this. [/ATTACH]

Looks GOOD, I like your choice in wheels. What tires did you go with? I went with toyo open country's . Ya I had to match my seats.

we need an off road picture of your truck.

Thanks I like them too lol. I didn't want the same wheels everyone else has.

I went with kuhmo road venture mud terrains. I was going to go with the toyos but they couldn't get them in fast enough lol I'm impatient. Lol

Hopefully will be going to the cabin at the end of the month, there I'll take the off-road picture.

Not sure on mileage yet. I just got the tires on today. I was only getting 12.6 to begin with lol. I have a take home car for work so I don't out many miles on my truck.

Hey Joe, are you getting your mileage calc from your computer? Because the computer only knows how far the truck is moving by calculating wheel revolutions.

Increased diameter means the truck is actually travelling farther than the computer thinks. You added 2" to your tire diameter, which means the truck is moving 6" further every time it turns. The difference moving from 33" to 35" tires is 6.1%. That would be enough to drop your comp's calculations a bit.

Plus you have increased rolling friction from larger tires. And if you're not running high enough tire pressure, that's adding to it, too.

Ok. I got it. A few more questions-

The picture above, is that taken in the NEW Normal mode?
How do you like the ride with the links switched?
Are you getting any warning lights or "service air suspension" lights?

That is riding in aero mode. With it in aero mode it drives like a truck used too lol ( meaning a little stiff). I get no codes unless I try and change the level any. You won't wanna ride with it in normal mode cause it has to much air in the system and you will just bounce.
I don't mind the ride at all as I'm used to older pickups with lifts, so the products weren't as good so they all rode a little stiffer.
If you have anymore questions feel free to ask.

Sorry trying to make sure i understand correctly, you were able to fit 35x12.50 with 20x10 wheels stock or it did require the link mod? Also any idea how tall the truck sits in parking mode? Only ask because i have to stay under 6﹐8 to fit inside parking garage at work...
