Many different darkside tires being used out there. Who is to say what is right. As long as the size fits and it rides good go for it.

So far so good.. just need to lean more thats all...running at 40psi
just had issues then reassembling as the tire is wider it rubbed the shaft case but once in its all good
popped at less than 40 psi...

Thanks for all your info guys!!!

Shitfire, you have to read enough to consider that a narrower tire is a better tire when it comes to crossover. Anything over a 215 you will start to see posts that regard
crossover effects. I know I can't tell any difference between my `150 stocker and 175 CT after about 100 miles. You decide.

Try lowering your air pressure!  I ran mine as low as 25 psi.  Just do it 5 psi at a time to see how it feels.
