    Ok, I know there are a ton of treads about "What tire should I get." Im not asking that. I've boiled it down to either the General Grabber AT2 or the Duratrack. What im concerned with is on tire rack they are listing the General's at almost 10lbs heavier than the Goodies. According to my calculations, that and extra 40lbs of rolling resistance and kenetic(?) force. Is this going to be a problem with stopping and general handling? I know 40lbs doesnt seem like much, but when its spinning, thats one hell of a rotational force...Also, the Generals totally are around 100 buck less. Just kinda curious, since I'm coming due to get rid of the Rugged Trails

    You'll notice it more with your fuel economy than you will in your brake pedal. You are correct though, there will be a difference, but stopping/acceleration should not be an issue.
