Well I only have 31x10.5... Although they are pretty much new, I didn't figure it mattered too much once they were caked with mud...lol

Your pics look good. I'm sure it just depends on what route/angle you decide to try certain things. When I went, the people who helped spot were a huge help, especially since it was my first time.

yeah it was my first time. but the problem we both ran into was the water/mud mix caked on the rocks. he has auto so he was able to keep sittin still, everytime we tried to get my goin we had it in a good spot and tried hittin the gas and lettin go of the clutch as fast as we could but kept fallin back, so we couldn't get the sitting right with it. but i still had a blast and deff love to do it again

i had no problem with the mud, but once we hit the rocks i couldn't catch traction. and the tires are pretty new. reducing tire pressure helped out but we were just lost. my 4 wheel drive was kickin just fine, then we had to figure out the posi lock thing, should've paid attention when the guy who i bought it from tried explainin to me how to use it, but havin stick for those steep parts gave me a lot of hell

Nah... BFGoodrich. I never got to try the wranglers out in the mud, but they sure gave me a headache on the highway...lol...
I was forced to swap 'em - bad death wobble due to the tires wearing uneven...

Looks like the trail is practically in someone's backyard. I can't believe they don't try to get the trail shut down if it experiences the kind of traffic this forum makes it sound like it does.


Just for clarification I'm not saying it should be shut down, just that I'm surprised the homeowners haven't gone to the local government yet.

lol that's their front yard, off the right, right there, there's a drop off with a creek and they have a bridge goin from the road to their house. it's a really nice place, they're doin something with remodeling, but the lady didnt mind we were out there, which was for awhile that was the hardest part for us. but then again there was only 2 of us. just don't go out there with a lot of people and they dont care, we respected the trail

the people on that side of the trail don't care. It's the people at the other entrance that we have to be careful of. Be sure to drive SLOWLY past the houses at the other entrance. Don't give them a reason to get upset with us going down there.

how the hell are they too skinny? my 235/75R15s do wonderfully on any terrain. It's more about the lug/tread pattern than the width.

What is the difference if there is a trail 50 yds in front of someones house or if there is a road in front of someones house? No matter what people will still be around and no matter what they both experience traffic the roads and highways get tons more of it so there really is no differance its just like living anywhere else IMO.

Buying a house on a roadway, one expects to experience road noise. When someone buys a house in the middle of the woods, they probably picked that location on purpose. People also tend to "hang out" on OHV trails more than a regular road. I'd be willing to bet that most of the people that live near Trails Road didn't know about it when they bought their houses. Plus, it would be a lot easier to shut down Trails Road than an actual road that serves a purpose aside from recreation.
