34x10.5 LTBs, like them alot. They dig to china and you can still run a decently low pressure.

That's ok man. I got them for $250 wheels and tires, wheels were repainted, tires ad less than 250 miles on them and were grooved for better traction (didn't help), so when I found that deal, I said h3ll, why not try them.

I didn't like them off road, compared to my other (TrXus) tires, so then in turn sold them for $450 to another jeeper, bought two more sets of wheels and finally came out with this set up.

IN mud and snow, fat tires "float" on the slippery crap. Think about how a snowshoe is shaped - much wider than a foot or normal shoe. The idea is it keeps a person from sinking in the snow. Fat tires work on the same principle.

i love the old school look of the skinny tires, but as far as skinny tires there arent that many sizes to choose from like maybe a 32x10.50 or 32x9.50, it seems like there is a bigger vareity in the 16in rim rather than the 15in, i might just go with a 16 in rim

Skinny tires do better in snow and mud because there is the same amount there is more force exerted to the ground. The area of the skinny tire is less than the fat tire, but the same amount of weight is distributed with less surface area. = more traction. Hope this helps a little.

in other words: you dig down to the solid ground, rather than floating on top in the slimy loose stuff.

well not to beat this to death but the reason narrow tires do well off road actually has to do with PSI. not tire pressure psi but total pounds per square inch of ground/mud/snow contact. if your jeep weighs for example 3500 lbs, that weight is a constant (does not change very much with wide or narrow tires) however the amount of weight (pounds per square inch of contact) under the tires changes significantly. the pressure/weight available for traction would be twice as much on a 10" wide tire as a 20" wide tire (not that you are running 20" wide)
