    This will probably my shortest thread ever (edit: not true, more than 100 views in about an hour /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif), but I'm tired from work under a deadline, so here goes:

    Mud tires suck because I can't hear the Andante of Beethoven's Fifth at speeds over 20 mph. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    Feel free to add your reasons.... /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Wouldn't that defy the point of the Andante?

    As a music education major....I can tell you this..
    Dynamics in music are all relative. It's ok to rock out to the andante a little too loud, because when you listen to "loud" or "forte" sections, it will be that much louder.
    So, it's ok that your "pp" sound like "mf", because your "mf" sections will sound like "ffff".

    OK, maybe a louder stereo is an inelegant solution...the alternative is to probably wear a personal headset with a good CD player. At least then every subtlty of the peice will not be lost to the resonance of the tires.

    Oddly enough, mud tires are quiet as a mouse when not on pavement...so stay away from pavement. /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    no... andante is a tempo, or speed of the music. has nothing to do with the volume.

    That's right, I forgot, Beethoven was deaf near the end... /forums/images/graemlins/woot.gif

    The, ahem, so-called 'stereo' in my truck is actually more of an afterthought; if I play "pp" sound like "mf", my "mf" sections will more sound like "chchchchchchchhch"; just goes to show you what you get if you go for the 'cheap' upgrades /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Mud tires rule when driving down Center st. around 60th. and some yutz in a ricer pulls up next to you. Just look down and think how fun it'd be to drive over them. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
