your tires (in this sig) are only .8" larger in diameter than stock.ElementCyclist said:OneEyeJack - The E can actually support lots of different wheel/tire size combos because it has a pretty big wheel well. I have 18s and pretty big tires, and still have plenty of space in there.
In 'off-road' situations I'd worry more about toughness of the wheel, and the size of the wheel openings, rather than its weight. Of course, I got the steel DX wheels, and have no interest in getting anything fancier.OneEyeJack said:I'm looking to keep the wheels at 16" and get some tires more geared towards off road. When there is less unsprung mass a vehicle with relatively low power just works better all around.
