well because that will be a huge deciding factor in what width you want to run if your gonna do tons of mud which i wouldn't recomend for several reasons you want a skinny tall tire so you want a 9.50-10.50 if you doing rocks you want a nice wide tire like a 12.50+
I dont recomend mud because it destroys everything, its a pain to clean, there is always a risk of hitting a deep one and hydrolocking the engine or some crap, it will break down all your gaskets around your tie rods and crap and allow dirt to get in the ends eventually causing your tie rod ends to fail and i have several more reasons with all that said i avoid mud and deep water if at all possible
lets just say prairie city was an eye opener kinda. since i ride dirtbikes i have been to prairie city multiple times, and they are known for their mud. ITS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET OFF. it take me hours to clean my bike. anyway, when we showed up in the jeep, i told myself no mud today cause i know that PC mud is a *****. but at the end of the day we found a decent size mud pit. and both my friends went through it, and it looked like fun so i did it once, twice,3,4,5,6,7 times. when i got home and when i was cleaning it i told myself im never gna do it again. EVER.... so ill stick to rocks. but wouldnt wider tires give me bad gas mileage
