    And yet it has no clutch pedal and changes gears by itself... one could say automatically !!

    The LT5 engine was only fitted to the ZR-1 vettes, it came with a Manual ZF 6speed.

    Having ridden motorcycles for much of my adult life I learned to pay attention to recommended tire pressure. What I see here with people deciding they know more than the manufacturers and their engineers is downright scary, from the 'skinny' tire motorcycles with three people on them to the under inflation on pickups leading to rapid tire edge wear and 'sloppy' handling. That said I keep to the 32 psi front and back as recommended by the door sticker.

    Yeah but technically 7 gears. It was an interesting piece of engineering The Chevrolet Corvette C4's 'Doug Nash 4+3' Manual Transmission Is Mechanical Wizardry

    Really is as simple as that. Unless you know about aftermarket wheels and tires, and I mean really know, which most people dont, then stick to the manufacturers recommended wheel and tire size and tire class/type, along with the recommended air pressure as noted on the door jamb tag.

    No idea what a shitter is, but as long as you know what you're doing then you're good.

    But yeah in your case you should stick to what the tire manufacturer recommends for that wheel/tire combo and vehicle weight.

    If ford makes that recommendation, it would be in your owners manual. If its not, then you are operating on your own, which is fine.

    In that case you follow what the tire manufacturer advises for that combo and the weight of the vehicle - in your case, being a truck, loaded and unloaded.

    I gathered that from the this:

    And you really should just look up that brand of tire and the type (not just the size) and see what that tire manufacturer recommends for both your trucks weight and tire pressure for that weight. It could be that your truck is too heavy for those tires.

    I can say from experience that low profile tires generally take more air pressure than "regular" sidewall tires.

    ^ I wanted a Cagiva Mito once as it had a 7-speed. One day I was following a tour bus. On the back it said 9-Speed. After that I lost interest in the Mito! 555
