I'm at the shop, gonna wash 'er up tonight and drop them to 35 and see what kinda sag there is.  They look correct at 40, just don't wanna introduce any abnormal wear.

That generation of Explorer is my favorite.  For both practical and sentimental reasons.

Yes. Was in a tight spot and it was either rip my passenger side mirror off on a tree, or scrape a fence a bit with the driver side front corner.  Backing up was...not an option. :lol:

Battle scars. :rockon:

No.  Plastic bumper, the paint is scraped away.  Otherwise I would've done so three years ago when it happened. :lol:

Speedometer reads correctly now with the larger tire, as confirmed by GPS and a couple residential speedometer sign unit things. It read about 2mph slow before, but it's right on now.

It should read slower with larger tires.

Correct.  Previously, when my speedometer indicated 60mph, I was actually going 58mph.  The larger tire "compensates" for that 2mph error so that when the speedometer says 60mph, it actually is 60mph. 

If that...makes sense. :lol:

I think what I meant to say in that other post is that my speedometer was actually reading high, not low, as it indicated I was going 2mph faster than I actually was.

Most speedos read a little low. Miata speedo is exactly 2mph low according to GPS and speedlimit radar signs..

Huh. IME, its normal for them to read slightly high.
We should get into the sympathy business.  There is a killing to be made.

I would imagine them reading slightly high (as mine did) is good "insurance."  But I feel like these days with new cars and everything super digital, they should be on point.

My E46 was 2% high. I know this because I had cruise control set to 100 mph and got a ticket for 98 mph. :lol:

That's about what I see in the G37 - the speedo reads higher than actual.
The CR-V though is dead accurate.

I remembered reading once about how German car speedometers were always high because the law required them to never read low for any tire size put on the vehicle. I did a little checking and that is pretty much correct. The regulation is found in European Union rule 39. It applies to all sizes of tire that a manufacturer intends to fit the vehicle with except snow tires. The speed at which vehicles are tested is determined by the maximum design speed of the vehicle. For cars designed to exceed 150km/h (Carspin cars) the car must be tested at 40km/h, 80km/h and 120km/h. The indicated speed (V1) must relate to the true speed (V2) according to the following formula.

0 ≤ (V1-V2) ≤ 0,1V2 + 4km/h

That means that at the top tested speed of 120km/h the indicated speed could be between 0-16km/h (0-10mph) higher than the true speed.

That's pretty nuts!

The fender flares were overdue for a fresh coat of paint. Pretty much an annual thing to keep them nice and black. The sun fades them a bit, but I think most of it comes from harsh winter road spray. Kind of a pain to get off and put back on, but worth it.

Winter happened. All four are pretty much like that. They survived one winter without corrosion but not since.
