Default Deciding Factor



So i tried telling a friend of mine he should get some more aggressive tires, they work wonders. He was always making fun of me because i get worse gas mileage. One day he showed me this trail that hasnt been touched all winter and bet me i couldnt make it through, well i made it through and sure enough he tried right after me and got stuck. After i pulled him out the next thing he said was, "Im getting bigger tires" just a funny moment and letting everyone know that upgrading from the stock tires is a good idea for those doubting it

What kind of tires does he have? Just the regular stock street tires?

Upgrading tires is the single best thing you can do to ANY vehicle IMO. Was almost the first thing I did to mine.


@Tom...he's got 31" Duratracs...or about 31". lol.
