With wider tires you are only gaining a half inch per inch wider tire, less backspacing will net you more width, but with increased wheel bearing and knuckle bearing wear, and will worsen steering characteristics, and make your PS (or your arms in my case) have to work harder to turn the wheels in stationary situations (wheels are no longer just pivoting, but actually moving when turned) I lost an inch of width going to 33x 12.5 tires when I lifted my cruiser 4 inches, with no loss of stability, and I will venture to say that it at least feels more stable with the lift because my suspension now functions properly.why do you say that? don't wider tires make it safer because of the short wheel base?
Yes Poser I bought my TSL's for my trip to school. :-*For what? Going to school????
I like my 15x42x15 swampers, that yes, I do drive down the road, to work, to the trail, or getting my butt home after the pull rig lays down. So don't give me this crap about the truck not seeing the pavement, and poor road maners and blah blah blah..
Lol I'm 240. I still like skinny tires.Yeah, my 13.50's cover the surface area just fine. Skinny tires for skinny people. My 220 pound self needs "da big-uns"...........go wide or don't ride.
