Inflating the actual size of the rubber......men are pigs.Ole Blue 60 got some new shoes today.
Here is the backstory.
I’ve been humming along happily on my KM3s These tires have done me right. Very quiet. They handle everything I’ve tossed at them which has been quite a lot since I bought them.
Then all of the sudden I get some 33x10.50-15 Maxxis Razr tires for my Pig and I realize how tiny the KM3s of the same size are.
I break out the tape measure and my 33x10.50 KMs are actually 30.5” tall.
That won’t do. Not only do I only see tiny roller skate tires when I look at them now, I also realize I’m not getting the “rubber overdrive” I seek with my 4 speed and 3.70 gears.
So, here’s the fix. 255/85-16 Yokahama MT G003s on steel wheels

Thank you. That reminds me. I’m going to see if I can get a PowerSurge built with a TBI pump. Stay tunedAlso, my fuel starvation issue showed up again. Popped the gas cap off and it cured it.
I had dying and starvation issues that were randomly (not always) cured by loosening the gas cap. I fought air and gas leaks in my crappy aux tank switching valves, and after gutting them all (and the aux tank) and installing a clear fuel filter (pre-pump), I can keep an eye on this aeration and leak problem. It has been said many times that 90% of TBI EFI issues are fuel pressure-related, and I agree. I see why many people end up installing in-tank pumps.
So, I would study every fuel line, fitting, or filter between the tank and your pump. I'm sure you have, but do it again .
Great photos and stories from you, as usual!
Are these Summit wheels? There are tons of threads on the Summit steelies, but none that identify the exact part# ordered. Many often have to run spacers...I suspect because there are 1 Million sizes (diameter, width, offset, backspacing) available.16x7 wheels. I found an old pic of a non US blue 60 with split rims. I had to have something similar.
Glad you asked. I thought I had linked this thread I started on steel wheel tech in this thread. I know you have a lot of steel wheel knowledge. Jump in there and share pleaseAre these Summit wheels?

So that I can throw it into an iPhone note, do you have the vendor and part #info on the 16x7s?
Is that a Toyota reman starter?Got some goodies from @Fourrunner. I’m running his battery cables but I caught one end and pulled it off the wire a while back.
I’ve had a weird starting issue that I determined was the starter, but while I was doing the starter i decided to replace the positive cable. Terminal. Starter. All at once.
Cleaned up the grounds while I was in there.
The AFI relearned and now the idle is silky smooth.

I’ve had one from these guys on Patina and the Warthog. They look new. Nice onesIs that a Toyota reman starter?
You run into any of these issues with the Sniper kit on the 55? Just thinking about a future kit and it seems like that may be the the way to go.I can’t seem to get rid of my rough idle or my hiccup I get in the gas when the truck is under load but low RPM (lugging)
On the rough idle. It feels like a miss but it’s only at idle. Last time I dug into it I pulled and cleaned the plugs and it went away but came back. I got new Toyota plugs from 49 Tire today. Will try that.
The second issue is this hiccup.
I drilled out the gas cap to let it breath better and it’s still with me. Now I have a 33 code.
This AFI is starting to irritate me
