Radial vs Bias

Recommended Posts

I will be doing the tire and wheel thing like rocmoc. I was just wondering what everyone thought radial or bias?

I have been able to find quite a few different options in 30x950-31x1050&31x1150. I'm just not sure what would be better but would think bias would be better for 4 wheeling.

I noticed that Micky Thompson's Baja tire is bias ply. They say its bias to better hold up to the offroad beating.

BUT, radial would be better for rock climbing (wall flexing). I reality, IMHO I don't think it matters until you turn Pro!

Radial flex more than bias. That is the principle behind the design to keep the tread/contact patch always in contact with the surface.

I guess that's were I was wrong I thought it had a flatter tread and was stiffer and the bias was more like a balloon and softer.

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      Hi All,
      Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR.  Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup.  Quoted from the dealer at $366.00.  For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare.   My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's.  I was thinking of going to 29's.  Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub?  All the dealers don't know.  If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?
      TIA

      Can anybody tell me where I can get wheel spacers for a Hisun HS500?  What other spacers will fit the hisun? Also, will 27-inch tires fit without rubbing? HELP!
