I agree that your pressure per square inch would change.. but I completely disagree about that being the reason skinny tires do well.

If that was the case, why would anyone air down? Keep 40 psi in your tires, less tire touching the ground = more traction!

Bottom line is the more tire that's touching the ground.. the better traction you have. The lower tire pressure you run, the more traction you have.

Skinny tires work well for some terrains like mud that has a hard bottom or snow on top of rocks etc... but they don't work as well as a fat tire in rocks, deep mud, muskeg, or deep snow.

Imagine a snow shoe in 3 feet of snow vs. a bicycle tire.

nice jeep btw.
Thanks man

Yeah I've got 12,000 miles on mine with not a lot of wear at all(still have all 3 "stages" of lugs), great grip everywhere, no problems in sand whatsoever(if you run up big dunes I cannot comment on that, not allowed on the dunes in NC), and great on rocks and stuff.

So whats considered deep mud where skinny tires would be less beneficial then skinny tires, you can only sink so far before you are stuck.

are there any 35x10.5 tires?

I dunno.. if the mud is hard on the bottom, and is only up to the bottom of your diff.. good to go.

Don't get this wrong, I'm all for skinny tires but the only thing that would have saved me here was a very, very wide tire and lots of the skinny pedal.

I'm pretty sure good MT tires that are meant for mud would have been fine. I was in a puddle up to the hood line and had no problem with mine last time in Uwharrie.

MT/Rs aren't exactly fantastic in mud comparatively speaking, moreso meant for rocks.

I run 33X10.5 BFG AT TA K/O ABCDE's right now.

After work I am off to pick up some BFG MT studs in 33X9.5 that have been gathering dust since BFG quit making them, 80% and all the studs still in for $150. Found an old pair of Stock Jeep wheels for $50 so $200 in parts and another $100 for new stems, mount, etc and I'll try to post before and after pics between the two if anyone wants to see that.

i'm no expert on the subject but it seems to me that theres only so much a mud tire can do, in nasty mud like that rubi-rubi i think only something like boggers and lots of gas would have saved you. i really like the look of skinny tall tires and theyre the most appropriate for the type of terrain where i live, so i'm sticking with them! right now i have 235/75 ATs but when i upgrade to larger tires i'll probly go with 33x9.5 MTs. i wish they made 31x9.5 tho, that would be the perfect size for me

What your looking for is a 245/75/16. That measures 30.5x9.6. So just go find some Rubicon take offs and your set. Or if you want something a little taller get a 235/85/16, that measures 31.7 x 9.4. So something close to the size you want is available, but you need a 16" rim.
