They don't get bad to add wear until you max them out. Stock keys don't let you go far enough. Its when people buy aftermarket keys which are clocked different, and they crank those. Puts way beyond stock keys will let you. That's when the wear starts happening and all the issues come up.
Guess that depends on vehicles. GM trucks you can max out stocks at 3" and definitely **** your CV's up, I went with Procomp Keys cause I got them cheap and did the whole front end at the same time.

    Yep. Rangers don't let you go far enough with stock keys to **** things up.

    And if you can go far enough with stock GM ones to mess things up, why would you need aftermarket keys...? Just crank the stock ones a little bit...

      Oh dang. Really? People online said it's more dependant on the tire pressure. Also it can act like a bead lock because of the pressure. So the max would be 33x10.50? I guess there's no real point to lift then, because we can fit those stock. I wanted the lift and 12.50s.
