One of the coolest things about narrow tires is you can often fit a taller tire when it's narrow.

Ah, ****, I just saw that they are winter tires. While some may be OK with running winter-specific tires year-round, I am very not. This tread pattern already looks like it may wear quickly, but with softer rubber, I can only imagine how fast it would disappear in warmer temps. Winter rubber can be an unreliable performer in warmer temps, too--not something I'll ever risk. Still a respectable-looking tire, but my personal interest in it just went to 0 since it doesn't look like it would have even close to enough lateral grip in the snow that I demand (Nokian Hakka's continue to reign supreme for me). Oh well.

I could be wrong, but I don't think they're Winter specific. As far as I know they are year round use general use commercial-hybrid-agressive AT tires that have a snow flake Winter rating that says they can also be used in Winter conditions.

Like a Duratrac is that ^ without being Winter specific.

Unless I misunderstood what they are.

Based on Uniroyal's website, it's not entirely clear to me if this tire is a year round tire with Winter abilities, or a Winter only tire.

Charley3, i calculate the amount of pressure for my tires based on the weight of my vehicle. i posted the math needed in another thread here someplace. anyway, my tracker ran great with 25 psi on the e-rated tires. my little ranger pu needed them at 35psi for the extra weight i carried in it (extra 27gl gas tank in the bed). honestly, i never got squirrely in turns most likely due to the light weight of the vehicles, and the stiff sidewalls of the tires. and on both those vehicles, i aired them down to about 5psi on the trails. i always have my tires tubed if i expect them to see any off road time. never lost a bead or had a flat. it was nice being able to pick my way around the trails with the narrower tires. i got lots of laughs from the guys i'd ride with until they saw how well it all worked. mine always had the least (or none at all) body rash or trail damage of the group. did everything they all did, just did it without having to bash up against rocks and logs with tires too big to walk around those things.
