narrow tire foot print
 
i just got a new set of swamper tsl 32x9.50 put on my stock 7" sammi rims and i'm only riding on the center line lugs. would airing them down help to get all tread on road? or do i have to invest in new wider rims [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Yeah, it would help, but why do you want your side lugs to contact the road? You've got less rolling resistance in your present state. Air down on the trails to get the side lugs biting.

I don't think so. Stock Sammi rims are 5.5". Jim

every sammi i've delt with has had 7" rims on them...?

when i was riding on the center lugs i was getting the wave effect, up and down motion, aired them down to 25psi and now it's alot better. i'm only on paved roads to go back and forth to work but it was buggin the heck out of me. [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

Every stock wheel I've ever seen has been 5.5"

This is the proper way to measure it.....
