Main Tire Size

Postby jjacky » Thu Aug 27, 2009 12:14 pm

The Highlander main tire comes in size 8.50-6.  Troy thinks 7.00-6 is also a good choice.  As I understand it, 7.00-6 would offer a 10 lbs weight savings but, because they are and inch and a half thinner, they may bog down in  soggy turf.  Any thoughts on fat versus thin?  Thanks
