Started my testing of the new tires at 47PSI (MAX PSI 50).
Drove 30 miles (hard :mrgreen: ) both paved and unpaved.
Too hard.
Sunday morning before launch I dropped the fronts to 43PSI, rears to 41.

Big better difference.
Paved, unpaved, downpours, the tires were great.
Quiet. Smooth-riding.
Good bite in dirt.
Shrugged off puddles and filled ruts.
Without pushing insanely, a gentle 'sing' when heavy cornering.

We'll see.

The Sunoco gas is not returning mileage as good as Mobil.

As always, more testing required.

And I have my oil change scheduled for Wednesday!

Gas mileage off; last tank mostly Mobil premium 23.9MPG.

Maybe plugs / air filter / something else?
Yeah, maybe a heavy foot since I got them new tires.

But it's time for plugs anyways, and I'll take a looksee at the air filter.......

First: Different brand o' gas.

Brand new tires are taller, so it's a little bit better than that.

I was referring to treadwear, but the difference you posted there will overwhelm wear.

Last tank 283.3 miles, 10.651 gallons of Shell premium.

I think it's me,
'cause I'm unable to cruise the interstates under 80MPH, and the 'back roads' are suffering a similar state: Unable to cruise under 50.
It's me foot.

Tires are proving themselves an excellent buy. Paved and unpaved they remain unfazed......

Congrats! I hope you have many wonderful and restful days with family and friends but I know the reality: more fast driving and lots of shooting.
Enjoy!

Hey, great. Congrats! Now your driving can be "leisurely" rather than rushing to or from work. Now you can just rush!
