dueler ats are good tires...

whatwasithinkin wide tires are made to float yes but what if you have a heavier vehicle than a wrangler?

im just curious if that would be your problem with a wide tire in snow?


Floatation on snow is more of a wide tire problem than a weight issue. Wranglers are kinda porkish even tho they dont appear to be heavy.

Something you southern folks wouldnt know much about is snowmobiling. As an analogy for comparison, would be my 550 pound snowmobile on its 15" wide track and 6" wide ski's vs. the Skidoo Tundra snowmobile. My sled is all about fast on the trails with some deep powder abilities. The Tundra sled is all about utility use. Its slow and weighs @650 pounds. Its a farm or utlilty sled. Its track is @20" wide and its ski's are @9" wide. Even with the Tundra pulling a load behind it, it gets right up on top of the snow in areas where mine would try but eventually sink. Even tho I have tons of HP over the Tundra, when the snow gets deep, its width will allow it to go places mine wont.

I went tire shoping the other day and found BFG AT's, I want to stay with 32's 10.50's but all they had was 32 X 11.5's.
My jeep is all stock, it doesn't rub now, but will I start to run in to problems going an inch wider?

it may but yours isnt going to be stock for long and those tires will still have good tread left on them for a good while
