Re: New Sneakers with Tax Refund...

If you run into mud, stay away from the BFG ATs, mud is not what they were made for.
Don't get me wrong (older version), great street, street snow, and sand tire but mud, they just plug up.

Re: Sliding Backwards

What do you have for an air gauge? Yes pretty sure they're 3 ply. I haven't siped them because I also use them in the rocks in the summer but I probably should do at least some shallow surface siping. Air gauge is just generic 0-60PSI analog gauges on my air up/down tools. They are a few PSI differ...

Re: Need some help getting set up

Be careful just throwing bigger tires on, not knowing what your gearing is, the tires could make it become a huge hwy pig that gets even worse mpg.

Re: 2015/2016 Snow Wheeler check-in

H8PVMNT Is there much wheeling in that area? My parents live about an hour away (Monarch) but can't seem to get them to find any trails in the area. Seem all the Lewis and Clark trails are for bikes or quads and the roads shut down in winter for snowmobiles or calving, so FS road are out until June ...

Re: Need some help getting set up

I'll second Nobody, if big tires aren't an option a good set of chains will help. I've seen them work but they were very unforgiving when he did stop. I'll add a winch on a receiver with receivers front and rear and something to bury (spare tire has worked in the past). This could help just that lit...

Re: 2015/2016 Snow Wheeler check-in

This year looks like a good start at this time. Have the Blazer updated this year with a new engine, working rear locker but not sure I like the wider track necessitated by cross-over steering. http://i1090.photobucket.com/albums/i378/rjewing99/Azer/Azer_Colockum_58_zpsf7786989.jpg Also getting clos...

Re: Place To Get Tires Balanced Well

Dynamic balancing works well.
Wallyworld air soft pellets work well and with beadlocks they are easy to install.
You can also try balancing with a bubble, take a look at YouTube. This might take a little investment but if you're in-control, might be with it.

WABDR

Last night I was making my way through different boards thinking about the Alaska off-road show, another thread on an expedition adventures and remembered the Washington Backcountry Discovery Route (WABDR). http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/WABDR Just because things are a little quiet, I'll ...

Re: Questions about snow wheeling "willing" :)

It's a little hard understand exactly what you want but I'll give it a try. 1.) 8" rim and 12.50 wide tires will be fine. I actually prefer the narrower rim, holds the bead a bit better and once aired down the tire flattens out nicely. 2.) "35x12.5... ... will it let me just go into any de...
