Thanks for the responses. A few things. It is in this section since I have a second gen. Tire forum doesn't seem to get much traffic and in the grand scheme of things, who really cares?
Second, I will be doing a lot of sand driving and conventional wisdom says a wider tire is better for sand but I have read on other forums that people running this tire in soft sand are having fantastic results so I wanted to hear people's experiences on here. Camel trophy runs sand dunes with tall skinny tires as the preferred tire.
I have only experience with wide tires but after reading and looking at what the true expedition vehicles are using all over the world I just don't see big wide tires being used with any of these vehicles which got me thinking.
Bottom line is this is why we have forums to share experiences and knowledge. Worrying about what section a thread is in or the standard antagonistic "use search" comments are counter productive. I appreciate the responses it's all good stuff!
