You offered your opinion in your first post.
Others stated their experience is different. Still others provide links to data that supports narrow tires outperform wider tires in just about every offroad driving condition found on our continent unless you are up to the frame.
Sharing your opinion over and over is sort of like arguing -or trying to convince us we are wrong.
So I asked (sarcastically) if these people also got it wrong?
The Turtle Expedition who has literally traveled around the world used a 255/85 R16 (33.3 x 10) for many thousands of miles on their full size Ford. Land Rover uses narrow 7.0 R16 XCL tires in most of their Camel Trophy events. The Rain Forest Challenge and The Trophy challenge have all been won by the aggressive Simex Trekker tire (35x11.00). Tom Sheppard often uses the 7-7.5 R16 Michelin XZL and XCL for many of his expeditions. All very narrow tires in relationship to their height…
To which you now act all hurt?
The thread is titled "255/85 R16 Owners Experience" and you are here arguing wider tires are better. wtf?
And yes, I thought the same thing, why isn't this in the wheel and tire section?
