If you read my other posts I say there is a sweet spot. As you said it’s situational and off-roading can mean more than one thing. The Raptor for example would be used differently than a Wrangler. My Jeep was a slug with 3.73s , 35s and the 5 speed Auto. I now have 4.56s and it’s night and day. I also added larger brakes which most people don’t consider when adding rotational mass. I don’t even want to know how many Jeeps are running 37s with stock brakes and axles shafts. Again there’s a sweet spot and for what the Raptor is built for on the street and occasional offroad the 35s are the way to go. We’re not bringing our factory trucks to run some pro course so 37s and above as far as I’m concerned in most situations have zero benefits.Right, cause smaller tires always worked out better offroad.. and 4:10's are just fine with 37's.. again.. situational.. my jeep has a deep 6 spd gearbox that loves them.. meaning not just the final gear can dictate your, ahem, size limits..
why are you so adamant on 35's being 'better'? Your points are completely situational and not an accurate thing to say when the entire offroad industry has adapted to larger tires. Especially in racing.. which a majority of the time comes to the retail sides of things. It's not cause they 'just look better going down the track'...
Never heard anyone at the end of any run..say, you know what? Im gonna take these off and go with 33's.. I just can't stand making it over all those obstacles.. I would love to hit more of those rocks.. crawling, and especially when I'm going 65.. man.. I'm missing out on so much with all this clearance.... Clarence..
..and that’s all I got to say about that.
