Q18. Will tire pressure affect the operation of the differential?

A18. Mismatched pressures mean different tire diameters and different wheel speeds. Keep the tire-rolling radius (with air pressure) within 1 /4" for on-road vehicles and 1 /2" for off-road vehicles.

Q19. What size tire (diameter) can I use with Auburn Gear differentials?

A19. Refer to the recommended tire size on page 35 of the catalog.

Q20. Is tire wear affected by limited-slip differentials?

A20. No. Auburn Gear differentials provide full wheel differentiation when turning so tire wear is minimized.

Q21. Will I get tire hop or chirp with the ECTED Max or limited-slip differential?

A21. It depends on the vehicle set-up and the tires. Typically, both the High Performance Series and Pro Series will accommodate turns on clean, dry pavement without wheel hop or tire chirp. In the "off" or limited-slip mode, the ECTED Max will accommodate turns on clean, dry pavement without wheel hop or tire chirp. In the full-locker mode (which should be used for severe off-road or drag strip performance) you may experience some wheel hop.
