What Works, What Doesn't and Why
By Rick "Super Hunky" Siemen
check this article out, is this guy full of sh*t or full of sh*t?
here are so great quotes:
- "Radials are the only way to go for serious off-road use. I have never - REPEAT NEVER - seen a really good non-radial tire for off-road work."
swampers? bias ply, must be crappy tires! not good for "serious" off road use, stick to your BFG all terrain radials
- "If you're running monster sized tires, like 44 inch Gumbo Mudders, there's no reason for you to air down in the first place."
Air down a big tire, no way! run that thing at 40 psi
- "On rocky terrain, like the Mint 400, I always ran maximum pressure."
But of course, why would you air down for the rocks, no way!, definetly save the low pressure driving for the street.
- "On hard-packed dirt roads, the A/Ts hook up much better than the M/Ts, and you can ACTUALLY hear them squeal when you're sliding on adobe surfaces"
You can hear them squel. Oh sh*t, you better return them right away!
That was a great article, what is he smoking. And the lesson of the day is, there are no good non radial off road tires, ALWAYS REMEMBER THAT
