Re: tire question

yes beacuse when aired down more tire is on the ground on a wider and taller tire thus provding more traction.

Re: tire question

yes, to a certain extent. taller tires roll over obstacles easier, so for rock crawling and general trail riding, the tallest tire your truck can manage is what you should use. for mud, taller and wider are both good, but if the tires weigh 300 pounds each then you need a really strong engine to keep them going, so they might not be as good as a smaller, lighter tire with a stock engine. but generally, in off-road situations, bigger is better [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: tire question

Yep, but keep in mind that the bigger they get the more torque they put on all of your drive train components and you'll need steeper gears to enjoy the big tires. So you either have to upgrade to stronger components or be real carefull with the skinny peddle. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] NORM
