    Hi all, just had a dilema whether to getting a size 235/75r15 may possibly save more gas in the long run or provide less stability in the snow or potentially any less grip or traction or sand than a 31/10.5 x15? :rolleyes:

    I've always used the 31/10.5x15. If it works for you, why change? :D

    Thanks for the validation and I thought so because I haven't had any issues until they have recently began to slip last winter in the rain once while entering the freeway and then once again while off-road this last summer on some dry hard pack I felt some slippage while applying quick pressure on the brake to avoid a pothole! Thanks again for the comment!

    well that would be why they are slipping. Maybe your next tire you could get something a little more aggressive but keep your MPH. like the Nitto Terra Grapplers. they ride nice, and preform well off-road.
