33 psi, IIRC.

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.

Thanks! People have said it makes me look like a cop.

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

Here she is on a level surface. Ready for a bath. New shoes deserve a bath.

Are those scratches on the front bumper?

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:

Oh, I assumed it was recent.

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:
