So long as the outside diameter is the same it don't matter what type of tire you use.

Yes, they have speed sensors that process input, but they’re not THAT sensitive. No need to scare the guy to death. Run them tires, you’ll be fine. It’s not like you’re running new 29” bias ply tires on the front and worn out 35” radials in the back. Damn.

But with that being said, I’ve got three sets of 17” take-off Goodyears and one set of 18” Michelins for sale. All sets with OEM F150 wheels and less than 4000 miles, I’ll make you a helluva deal. Just about the same price you paid for two new Schwabs.

If the original tires had 30,000 of tread left on them, I would have kept them on there and not have bought the 2 new ones.
