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.
