Question about 1991 Ford F150

1 Answer

Ignorance. I need to know which tires to put chains on.

I have a 91 f-150.  An old work truck I picked up for $1500.  I only use to haul things about 4x a year.  Now its snowing and I can't drive my little capri convertible so I'm wondering if I dare to chain up the truck, do they go on the front or the rear and how do I tell.

They go on the rear, those are the wheels that drive the truck.

Is my 2004 dodge 1500 rear wheel drive. Want to make sure which tires to put the chains on.

It is either rear-wheel drive or 4-wheel drive. If you don't have 4WD, it's correct to put chains on the rear wheels.

Note that you should not operate any vehicle with 4WD engaged on hard surfaces with chains on only two of the wheels, as they'll be rotating at different rates and you can damage the transmission that way.

Can i put snow chains on a 2003 yukon denali xl? tire size 275 70 17

If its legal in your state. Chains are usually fround upon the car/truck corporations in using on your vehicle when its under their warranty. I would use them only when I had to. First I would install a set and make sure they fit correctly. If too loose they can slap the vehicles body which would knarl up the paint work really good

My 2004, 1500 Z-71 Avalanche has a metal-to-metal "slapping" noise comming from the transfer case. The frequency of the noise is directly related to the speed the tires are rotating. (I put it up on blocks...

Sounds like the chain drive is loose so you could split the case and see if the chain has stretched or one of the gears has some broken teeth be sure it's not something inside the flywheel plate check that first also check that it's not a drive line or a wheel bearing. let me know if you need more help. Thanks for using Fix-ya.

I have a 2004 Suburban 1500 2wd tire chains

You can install the chains but then you must be sure the chains have clearance so they dont hit the truck.Some of the newer trucks have less room for chains.
With the chains install, lay down under the truck and do a close check on the chains clearance.
It maybe that they hit the truck and cannot be used and/or it maybe the manual is makeing a genaric statement. But you must check the clearance out before you drive anywhere.
I hope this helps you.

Are load range D Uniroyal Laredo LT225/75R16 load range D tires satisfactory, if hauling a full load of passengers or should D Uniroyal Laredo LT225/75R16 load range E be used. 2500 model

The load range refers to what used to be ply ratings, it is now the grade for holding pressure at load, a "D" range is equal to 8 ply, and the load index for this tire is approx 2300lbs/tire, the "E" rating is equal to 10 ply, and the load index is approx 2700lbs/tire. If you are hauling 12 passengers at 200lbs/passenger plus driver total is 2600lbs. I would say the "E" rated tire is better for that application. If you need more info you can go to google and type in understanding tire markings or ratings, and there are several sites that will cover all tire markings in depth, I hope this helps, let me know

I think you have a worn WHEEL BEARING.
Place your truck on LEVEL SOLID ground.
SCOTCH the rear tires, IF you are on dirt put a section of a 2"x10" board under your jack, jack up the right front and secure it with a jack stand. Grasp the TOP of the tire with one hand and the BOTTOM of the tire with the other. Using some effort , rack the wheel/tire back and forth. You are looking for 'PLAY' in the wheel bearing and there should be NONE. If there is, the WHEEL BEARING is WORN and should be replaced. Do the same thing with the left front to determine if there is 'play' there as well.
A worn wheel bearing will not always make a noise all the time. The noise is most often intermittent and can sound like a 'grating', 'grinding' or 'chattering' noise from the front end.
The $$ cost can range from under $200 up to about $400 including labor and tax, depending on the quality of the bearing assembly you decide to install. If you go 'cheap' be ready to do a 'repeat' in about a year or so :(
Good luck. :)

1998 Dodge Ram 1500 won't start

still sounds like the timing belt/chain to me,especially since it just shut off goin down the road, had a 93 that did the same thing,dodge has a kind of safety switch that if the timing belt breaks the engine will shut down to keep you from tearing anything else up.

2500 hd chevy needs new tires at 40,000 which ones best

If you are hauling most of the time, then consider commercial tyres - often denoted by a "C" at the end of the spec. These have a harder tread compound - so will tend to wear less, and thicker sidewall.
Ask at tyre fitters who do trucks most of the time - and use their advice. Prices can be all over the place, with no bearing on quality or longevity. Use your fingers as the best guide - the harder the tread - the longer it will last.
If you expect snow or ice, keep your softer tyres on the rims for winter, and use the harder ones for summer.

I drive a Land Rover and have 3 sets depending on summer, winter or off-road. Keep them under a tarp, and if outdoors - chained together!
