Re: How do big tires stress axles?

TR would know more, but If you wheel is offset correctly, the width of the tire won't directly stress it. the rotation of the large amount of weight is what can kill it. if the tire was equal weight(35 or 33) they would both stress about the same. the heavier the weight is farther out the more rotating stress that is there.
