Thanks Ron. The tire shop yesterday said the 245's would not fit. Was going to try to save some money and buy tires in Oregon. No sales tax. I've been running the 225 XZE's since 2010. I'd prefer Michelins again. Thanks again.
Have any of you Kodiak owners gone from a 225/70-19.5 to a 245/70 -19.5? When I put the last set on I also used Dynabeads instead of a spin balance. I've not had any issues but a tire shop I talked to today recommended a spin balance not beads. Thanks.
Come to find out the rear calipers were stuck and wore off the outside of the rotors nearly to the vents in the center of the rotor. It appears that because of the weight of these rigs there is a lot of brake bias to the rear brakes. Not like a regular car or truck where the front brakes do the majority of the braking. So I got new calipers, rotors, pads and seals on the rear and the fronts are still good. It is difficult to see the rotor the way everything is covered. You need to pull the wheels to get a good look.
Has anyone replaced their Kodiak's brakes? I've noticed a grinding noise from the front brakes lately. There is alot of pad still there at least 3/8ths of an inch. Also the pedal is feeling soft. I plan to get them checked soon. Just bracing myself for the cost. LOL. Thanks.
