The size difference in those photo is almost none (i realize the air and weight part). The MTR's are really nice compared to KM2's. Mine had almost no weights on 3 of the 5 tires! Very quiet on road. Very grippy of road.
Any desires yet to regrear?
Well the difference was 2 1/8". Enough for me to certainly be happy with the choice.
I'm re-gearing next week to 5:13's. I'm happy with that choice with a 2 door & manual transmission. I am surprised that the current 4:88's don't feel too bad on the street. Backing up an incline, I had to rev a little more than normal, but they have been fine around town. I could have gone to 5:38's, but with the manual, I'm sure the 5:13's will be fine.
We will be replacing the shocks and springs with Poly Performance Synergy shocks and progressive-rate 4.0's.
We will pull the front axle and do an outer Poly Performance sleeve and truss, new shock mounts, change to a 3-link set up, possibly extended the bump-stops (we'll see), replace the upper control-arm bushings, install bar-pin eliminators in the rear, trim the rear pinch-seam and rock rail, add a rebuilt PSC steering box, add a EVO sector-shaft brace, and possibly put in an Or-Fab sport cage.
*ALASHA- You are going to love these tires.
Thanks Zack. Just trying to keep up ya' know....
