Well in that case, wider tires would be good in snow and sand, right? Since flotation is important on those surfaces.
However, I mostly deal with rock, and some mud now and again (though I try to avoid it).
Dang. Well the KM3 looks like the best option in a 33x10.5r15. I wasn't a fan of the KM2.

As @Chrisnvegas mentioned also, the reciprocating mass has its negatives.

Partially comes from experience living in the mountains of Colorado. Back at a time when roads were plowed till the school buses returned to the bus barn. That meant unplowed roads after 4:30 pm give or take.
On the way home I would be pushing snow with the front bumper of my CJ.
Tall & thin. That was definitely better on snow covered roads.
Weight. Unsprung weight. It's a big deal.
Weight. Flywheel effect of tire/wheel combo, especially braking.
I see so benefit except when flotation is an issue.
And I personally don't like the look.
The speaker is still not opened.
There are wires in the package that I don't want to cut.
Maybe I'll try a carpet knife.

Admittedly I’ve never run them, but from what I’ve seen duratracks are a great off-road tool, but as a tire probably aren’t that good. There’s better tires out there but as an off road tool it’s hard to argue with their performance.

I'd really rather stick with the Duratracs because they are such a good solid all-around tire, but my theory has been that 12.5 tires are heavier and on a light Jeep, don't provide a traction advantage due to less pounds per square inch of downforce on the traction surface. Am I correct? Am I being dumb by wanting to stick to a 10.5" wide tire?

Anyone know how to open these? I used a brand new razor blade and it just bounced off.
They should make Jeeps out of this stuff. It's like Kevlar reinforced plastic. Ridiculous

Remember my 'test' of my .22 dueling tree with my .45? Here's the final prototype of a new centerfire dueling tree.
Sorry for the vertical video. I wasn't filming.

Stop making sense. People are going to start snickering at you like they do me.
I actually hadn’t read or heard that before.
Refreshing; I haven’t heard a president speak like that mostly since 1988? Truth. Hard truth. And hope. And not embarrassed or apologetic about religion.
Do politicians even ever inspire hope anymore? I mean I guess 50.1%+ felt hope or something with trump?
I want an inspiring believable speech from a candidate. Repeatedly, right through his exit speech.
I dunno; is there hope?
Eisenhower was before my time. I just remember a president who said, “I hope the environmentalists don’t find out about this! We used to fly Air Force One low over Wyoming and shoot buffalo from the window”

Eisenhower's 1960 exit speech should be required learning in schools with a detailed test prior to graduation.
It was a speech of prophecy.
in 16 short minutes, he covered everything wrong with our country today.
The corruption and monetizing of agriculture (ethanol and taxpayer paid crop insurance, paying not to grow ect)
And he was not anti-military. Rather, he understood the need for a strong military both during wartime and peacetime. A military used wisely... (endless wars)
"We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss of their political and spiritual heritage" (20 trillion in debt)
From about 9:50 to 10:50 he covers the corruption of scholars, the universities and freedom of thought. The corruption of government sponsored research. (global warming)
The best 16 minutes of your time on youtube.

boojo- your dates are way, way, off.
The climate cycle is in the thousands not millions.
A year or so ago I read the long chapter on climate change from the 1941 USDA annual report. Yes, 1941.
Science has come along way since then, but intelligence hasn’t.

What I am on my soap box about here is hope to keep good old fashioned gasoline available. There is new research that may be able to provide it and manufacture it and keep our source of it alive forever.
Lots of mention of Hippies. There are old school Hippies and new school hippies. Two different groups and two different sets of values IMO> Old school wants horsepower and muscle cars and stuff. New school wants a Subaru with liberal stickers all over it instead of a paint job. Just my take on it.
