Default 35" tires affect mds?

hi guys, im going to be putting bilstein adjustable shocks on my 2012 sport and some 33" tires or 35" tires 12.5" wide. i have heard of people with 35's say there mds (eco light on dash) doesnt come on anymore unless going down a hill. So im wondering if anyone has experience with this and if maybe i shouldnt be running that big of a tire, i still want my mds to work as it should. Possibly the 33x12.5 will be better. thanks guys

The ONLY way to shut your MDS off, is to never put it in Drive on the 2011 & 2012
because you can't change the programming

earlier models can be reprogrammed, 2010 & older Rams
2500 & 3500 models don't have MDS, but it the same block

sorry thats not what i was asking, i was trying to ask if the mds will be affected with the bigger tires? id still like my mds to work but i have heard of people with larger tires than stock say their mds wont come on anymore because the engine is working harder.

sorry im not trying to shut it off i just would like to know if it will still work the same with larger tires

thanks

I will agree with 1500ram12 because I believe the MDS program operates between a set engine rpm and wheel speed. If you change either, most definitely the outcome will be either more often or less frequent. With the stock 275/60-20's(32.99") on my Ram, my ECO likes to hit between 1500 and 1800rpm depending on throttle manipulation. At 72mph freeway speeds on cruise control, running at 1800rpm, on level ground, the ECO will hold. Any heavy head wind or uphill to push the rpms above that 1800 mark on my truck will pull her out of ECO mode. I suggest that you invest in a Speedometer Calibrator to adjust for change in tire size and see if that keeps everything in sync bud. Hypertech's Speedo Calibrator will work on our 11's and 12's, just no tuning capabilities.
