35's vs 37's on dana 44 debate

Okay so we all know it's like beating a dead horse but this might be something at least to my knowledge not covered. Everyone says that 35's with chromo's on a d44 is a good combo but a 37 is asking for something to explode. My 37 old version MTR like everyone says runs on the small side and measures about 36 on a good day. And I've heard that the new MTR or other tires run true to their full sizes, so what exactly about that one inch is it that causes such trouble?

I believe I once read mrblaine explaining something about the larger contact patch but want a bit more info. I understand breakage is inevitable no matter what combos but am a bit confused. I myself run 37's and have twisted a pair of cromo splines but want to know, if I did the exact same trail in the exact same driving manner with 35's, would those cromo's really have lasted?

This is not trying to convince ppl to run 37's as I myself will upgrade to a d60 or go to 35's.

If you don't understand the theory, than you should move up to at least D60s?If you don't continue on. It's only a matter of time on your outter D44 front axles!MrBlaine knows what he is speaking about!And yes your beating a dead horse!Do a search, and yes this has been covered a million times!

The new MT/R with Kevlar is not available in a 37" size for a 15" wheel. The 37" for a 17" wheel is about $325. The 35" for a 15" wheel is about $200.
