Is it my tires??????
So we were in Arizona out in BLM territory dirt bike riding. My inlaw took his truck to gather wood. Got stuck in a river bed. I thought I was going to help him. But NO. My truck started to dig in just trying to position to get him out. I lowers psi to 60 lbs and still no go. So I got put of there.
How emberasing is that? Any ways. Is it cause of the type of tires I have? (Michelin X XZE 225/70R19.5 Front and X XDS2 on rears). Some one said these are highway tires. That I need wider off road tires. I only haul my 5th wheel 3-4 times a year so I don't really need the heavy load tire.
What tires do I need so that this doesn't happen again? I'd like to keep truck as close to stock as possible. I don't like spacers, or lift kits. Well I do but don't like the problems introduced by most of these mods.
Where I live there is mud roads, snow, and dirt roads. Ohh yah some paved roads as well.
Appreciate the help in advance.
