  • PitSnipe (Kyle): Wow, I have not heard of this issue. 15 hour job for a $50 part is nuts. Hopefully someone that knows of this issue will speak up.

  • downs44: Got an 06 that just went through SMOD. Got everything replaced. Now my low oil pressure light is flickering on after the engine warms up and the truck is at idle. Doing some digging on the forums it looks like a common problem is the rear timing cover gallery gasket leaking and causes the symptoms. Looks like a 15 hour or so repair for a $50 part. Was wondering if anyone else has had this issue and any words of advise. To save some dialogue, the oil pressure sensor is about a year old and I changed the oil and filter after i noticed the light and that did not fix the issue.

how do your 33's handle on the highway. I do a decent amount of driving on the freeway, and Im driving to washington this summer so i want to make sure I have a good handle on the freeway.

I'm going to get the OEM leaf packs (suppose to give 1.5"-2.5" lift) in the rear, and OEM coilovers in the front (1.5"-2" lift) in the front.

So... will 32's be a better option if I'm on the freeway a little more with moderate offroading

and will 33's fit on a stock suspension? if they dont, can I make it to mod day and not have any serious damage?

33's will fit no problem, and honestly I would get Duratracs and/or BFG AT's both a great highway tire with offroad capability, best of both worlds. Only thing you have to do with 33's is a melt mod which is easy and can wait until mod day to be done you will have slight rubbing but no major damage at all.

If I were you show up to a mod day and see what people have and then decide.

You'll see a bunch of different options!

I'm worried that if I wait that long, discount tire wont let me return them. How long do you think I can wait to trade them in and get something else?

Not that long, I would call the store you got them from tomorrow and explain that you don't like the current tires and you need to get 285's and make sure they will do it, they did it for me at Country Club and Baseline store but I was exactly a week out, don't wait long.

Ya I was going to stop by tomorrow and see what they said. Will 33's fit a stock x and not rub or cause any damage?

33's will rub slightly, all you need to do is get a heat gun and heat up where they rub plastic fender liner and push that plastic back while it is heated up, they will mold that way and no more rubbing, literally takes 20-30 minutes. Discount may say they don't recommend 33's but trust us, they fit great, half the guys on here have them with the melt mod and have zero issues.

would i be able to make it to mod day without doing the melt mod? I'm get my leaf springs and coilovers installed on mod day. I'm a college student that lives on campus from out of state, so tools and a good working place is not something I have right now.

Yes you should be fine, you will sound goofy until then with the slight rubbing but its just rubbing the plastic fender liner and shouldn't be any damage, mainly will only rub when you turn 3/4 to full lock, try to turn wider for 2 weeks.

I told Discount that the tires I had felt really loose and squishy on the road and unsafe while turning and I wanted to get a better tire that's stronger and bigger, when I mentioned I wanted to go with Duratracs he was like, oh yeah a much better tire than the ones you got for sure, So just feed them some BS and they should do it, like I said there customer service is normally really good, my dad has returned tires after a week there as well.

How big of a difference will I see and feel between 32's and 33's?

Feel, there will really be no difference. The 33 is obviously bigger, taller, etc... with a lift 33 will fill the wheel well better, look good and give you a slightly taller stance, with a 31 and 32 you may be disappointed because the higher you go with lift the smaller they will look. With your setup OME 1.5"-2" of lift and 33's that will be a perfect fit, I ran that for about 6 months until I went higher on the lift. Don't let the melt mod scare you away, 33's is the way to go and the melt mod is a piece of cake, 11Pro4X(Marcin) has a heat gun you can do it with in 20 minutes, I know because Ive used it before.

Seriously you can go pick up a heat gun this weekend at Harbor Freight for $12.99 and do it yourself and be good to go within minutes.

So I went down to discount tire today, and swapped out my bfg's. They were awesome about switching them out. I have se xterra, so the salesman told me to wait and get some bigger tires. But I asked them to put some 33's on there to see how they would fit.

And what do you know just like everyone said, they fit. I have not rubbed at all.

They did not have much in stock for that size for some reason. I did some research while I was there and found that some xterras and quite a few frontiers run the Cooper Discoverer ATP's, and loved them.

So I decided to go with them. They feel great, and I'm not rubbing at all, I havent driven much on them since I just got them on.

But I'll keep you guys posted on how these perform. They seem to be solid tires with a good tread design.

Thanks for everyones input and help!

Ya, I was impressed with them. They took care of it fast and with no questions asked. I just called and said I wanted to trade my tires in. They told me to come on in. I found the guy I spoke to on the phone, and figured I'd need to give him some reasons why I wanted to trade them in. But he just asked me what I wanted and showed me prices and what my options were.
