I believe it was Parapilot who pointed out this thought provoking article on Wide vs Skinny tires : Expeditions West: Tire Selection for Expedition Travel .........
Some of you probably have seen this boggling discussion on the IHMud forum on the topic where the author of the above article about defends his "skinny wins" conclusion : Wide vs. Skinny
Personally, given a broad spectrum, I sit on the somewhat wide-ish side of the fence. That probably has more to do with the fact that 90% of my 4x4 driving time is essentially highway, on 5% I would rather not make it across the obstacle rather than risk a roll-over and for the remaining 5% , I'd rather live with the shortcomings....
I do recognize that this may be too broad a discussion to really proove fruitful however, would be interesting to know what the experts and gurus feel on the matter given local conditions and terrain requirements.
