...you can get away with a tad of hammering without anybody noticing anything. like i said, "massaging" :D

Thank you!

I'll consider the "Massage" idea, it will depend on the Tires I could found Soon.

Kind Regards.

I've Noticed something interesting...

I Measured the 205/60 R 15" Tires on my BumbleBeast and they are 25"

and I Found that with those, my BumbleBeast performs Very Well On-Road and Off-Road.

The Steering became noticeable Softer ... :eek: ... it was Harder, Before the SJR 2" Lift kit install, when my subie Rode on Fat 13" Tires.

Also the Weberized EA82 sometimes asks for downshifting from 3rd to 2nd Speeds when I Drive Uphill on our Steep roads, but the 2nd Speed really Feels more "Powerful" (torquier) and faster than before.

So, Since I Drive 60% on Road on City Streets & Highways (is my Daily Driver) and 40% off-Roading on Weekends... Seems like those 25" Tires are the Best Option for such usage.

So I Decided to Keep 'em 'till they run Bald! ;)

Kind Regards.
