Re: Best rugged tire for ~2in lift with stock 18in V8 LE rims

stock height 2008 V8 SE and I have been running the BFG KO2 275/65/18 for the past 5 years. they have been excellent in all conditions: sand, mud and snow.
If I lift the truck I would probably go with same tires in a bigger size.

it only does it when it's cold so it's kinda odd. I would think if it was the starter, it would fail all the time.

I always ran 24F since I have the V8. Not sure what's next. starter relay or starter going bad ? I cleaned up battery te...

got my replacement from Courtesy Nissan and installed them tonight. All 8 of them had the exact same gap 0.037 ish which is about the gap that was on the oem ones I removed with 120K on them. The counterfeits I pulled had various gaps: 3 were 0.020, 3 were 0.025 and 2 were 0.030 ish. I also noticed ...

thanks for the feedback. yeah I only feel that slight misfire when idling at a stop light. When driving engine feels strong. That 5.6L really got a good take off on a mid size SUV :)
Courtesy Nissan just shipped my oem spark plugs. I will compare the gap and packaging to the NGK I got on Ebay...
