Time for new tires--Question

Hey everyone, I have an 2007 sxt with 235/65/17 tires and was looking into the BF Goodrich Ta Ko's all terrains. Anyone have any thoughts on them? They are only offered in 245/70/17 a little larger than what is stock. I realize that the speedometer is going to be a little off (5mph), which I can have adjusted as well as the TPMS sensors. But, mainly I don't want to rub on the front wheel wells either. There aren't too many tires offered for us that are beefier it seems for the 235/65/17. Just wondering if they would work. They seem to get good reviews on the various tire websites.

Hello jskits, Welcome to the forum.

The 245/70R17 may rub without some modifications. I would recommend looking at the 245/65R17. These are a little taller and wider than your stock tires but you shouldn't have an rubbing with them. There are a lot of great tires in this size. Here's a link. Let us know if we can help you more.

Need New Tires

I need new tires for my 2008 Nitro SXT 4X4. I put stock 225 75 16 on the last time. Was not happy with the wear I received. Currently run 235 75 16 Goodyear Silent Armor on my work Escape and like them a lot. I am told by the local Dealer that they can only get Silent Armors in 235 75 16. Will they fit without Rubbing. I would be going from an overall Dia. of 29.28 to 29.87 inches. I don't want to mount them and find that they give me a problem. Speed can be adjusted manually and the Tire Sensor can be fixed also I would assume. Any help is appreciated

The 235/75R16 will work fine on your stock wheels if you don't mind going with a slightly larger tire. Here's a link to the tires we have available in this size and your stock size. If you would like to talk about some of these options feel free to give us a ring, anyone here would be happy to help you.

Normal Operation

Well after close to a year of owning my 2011 shock 4wd, I have experienced a few things that may be normal operation for the Nitro. I have only put about 5K miles on it. I'm currently at a little over 44K.

I did some searching, but didn't see anything directly that matches some things I am experiencing.

I have noticed that when I use 4wd, there is a slight whining noise when I accelerate. Sounds like its coming from under the rear seats, so I would guess transfer case, but haven't climbed under to check and see. As soon as you let off a bit or driving at a constant speed, the noise fades away. Dealer claims that some whine for the transfer case is normal. I haven't experienced this with other 4wd vehicles, so wanted to some input from other owners.

Another thing I have noticed is that when traction control kicks in, in 2wd or 4wd, the headlights seem to flicker. Its like they brighten and dim very quickly. They are not flashing on and off, but best way to explain it is a flicker. It will do this until you let up on the gas to stop spinning. It can be a bit annoying when you are behind someone at a stop light and there is snow or ice on the road. They think I am flashing my lights at them.

Since I don't ever plan on towing anything near the 5K capacity, can I put a different, possibly softer shock in to help with the rough ride? It seems like even the slightest imperfection in the road is amplified quite a bit.

When I had it in for an oil change and free inspection, they said the shocks, tie rods, and ball joints seemed in good working order.

There are some other little things, but I can ask about those later. LOL.

Thanks

Shawn
