Sorry, I missed this.
Chalking is simply using a piece of chalk to mark the tread from side to side...then go for a drive as you are normally loaded...maybe 10 miles or so...then look at the chalk...if there is still heavy chalk at the edges then the tire is overinflated...it's a guide.
People tend to look at the tire rating and fill it to the sidewall rating, trouble is they typically don't carry the weight...then the tires wear.

Lots or rear tire spin still. Saying that even thought the rears still spin there seams to still be lots of control. When in four wheel drive its like the snow isn't even there. I also got a good break on the insurance bill because of the winter rating. Down fall. They wear fast.
Cool on the update.
