BED HOP Gone After I switched the MUD TIRES out for ALL-Terrains? Anyone know why?
I'm curious to why when i had my cooper stt's i had bed hop around 40-45mph and now since i installed the nitto terra grapplers same size 325/60/r18 there is no bed hop,lower road noise,smoother ride i know this is normal but the bed hop i don't get that? Anyone with answers would be much appreciated because i have no clue how that changed the difference. Also i don't rub in the front anymore either i can fully lock it without any rubbing which i love!

I put some Nitto Terra Grapplers on 325/60/r18 i bought from a guy for $60 for a set ha.

Were either of the rear wheels out of balance? When you bought the tires did they sit mounted in one spot for a long period of time? Those are just two things I could think of why a tire would give a vibration. Other than as asked before if they were out of round.

oh okay i agree then ha i know i would much rather have all-terrains on my truck now with it being lifted compared to a mud tire being that it made my truck shake, road noise, and the all around ride was a comfortable. I will probably buy a new set of Nitto Terra Grapplers 35 12.50 end of this year or next year.

When you get around 33"-35" and above in tire height you have more of a chance to get a tire that is out of round, don't ask me why but we ran into this alot. We just sent the tire back to the distributor. Thats one reason I run BFG A/T's or M/T's, we had good luck with them. BFG has been making those tires in large sizes forever so I think they have them fiquired out on howto make them round and to last.

Yeah i was actually looking at the BFG AT KO's my buddy has them on his truck and i've always like the way they look with the tread design but they are really exspensive compared to the Nitto Terra's which i am thinking about getting some brand new off of www.rimzoneonline.com for $912 which isn't bad for 35 12.50's and they have free shipping i havent found a site online that is cheaper than them do you know anywhere else that is cheaper and offers free shipping on tires?
