You talking about the Michelins?

Guys like them.... I guess because they're fawking big. But they suck. They really, really suck. If you want to haul 20 tons of stuff out into the woods, they're okay, I guess. But the compound is stupid tough.... they just don't hook up. You can sit there and get them good and warm, and still nothing. The same rig on a set of 1/2 bald swampers would scoot right up, but on the Michelins? Nothing.

then why do so many people run them? when they are at 0-3 psi they seem to flex fine. i dont get it?

Durometer of the rubber compound doenst lend itself to being "sticky" under any conditions. Why do people run them? Big and can be found cheap. From the ones I seen, not impressed. Just my .02

They don't flex until you groove them to death, they don't hook up real well, and they ride hard as a rock, but at least they are really heavy:flipoff2: .

hey man calm down just going with the flow here. but no biggy i meant nothing by it as i know that you didnt! i like the look of the stazwork wheel in a 20. and from what i have seen and read the 20 cuts down on sidewall roll with bigger tires but also allows the tire to work well at low pressure. i just hate going with a 17 since its not really what i want. and i know with my luck once i do, someone will come out with a nice 42 on a 20 inch tire that isnt a radial... i might just end up going with the 39.5 iroks.. once again i appologise...just playing along
