    I heard narrow tires are good for a 4x4 because they dig down better.
    Well vote what you think is best and list why!

    For what I need, the narrow ones work better. I run 10 ply radial buckshot mudders on my 84 k30 4x4. They dig good and they won't push snow.

    just depends on what you do with the truck .i use wide for mud and sand,narrow for snow. i think wide looks better on a 4wd. thats my .02 cents

    Wide definately looks better. I don't get in much sand but mine do ok in the mud too but your right, depends on what your doing.

    Narrow tires work great in snow. They push down through the snow and allow the tire to grip the asphault. On ice, mud, and sand wider tires are need to give you more traction.

    WIDE... i prefer to ride on top of the mud and snow, i like the rear end to slide out when i'm wheelin.' i'm kind of a closet drift freak.

    Couldn't have put it better myself HAHA! Narrow will bite better in snow but wide for the mud!

    I just hate the look of a lifted truck riding around on skinny tires...
    For some reason it reminds me of those old OLD bycicles from Charley Chaplain days where it was one HUGE wheel in the front and one small wheel in the back... Dunno why just does heh.

    I agree with the application as to wide or narrow and DEFINATELY think that if you jack a truck up it looks better with some meat under them fender wells!:applaud:

    Don't want to throw a hotdog down a hallway.

    I say wider is better, like it was said before looks better with some meat under the wheel well. Plus give you a better footprint for traction.
