    Offroad only, radial or bias. If you had to pick a tire that would get you in and out of any type place what would it be? I am thinking in the 35-40 inch size.

    Bias are much tougher in the sidewall area, which is where most off road failures occur...and the SX is probably the toughest one out there, with the TSL behind it...

    Listen to the Fry Daddy on this one. Crazy one that he is was doing burnouts with his tires on the rocks at Frank Raines......oops, forget to mention one thing, he was using the sidewalls as contact points on the rocks for these burnouts. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sxs. I run the 38.5x14.50/15s. They are okay on the road once they get hot.

    Cause a 38X14.5X15 or 16.5 is the biggest SX there is for now.

    agreed, SXs are pretty tough. TSLs and Boggers dont seem to have many weaknesses either... /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
