off road is a totally different ballgame and you can not mix one with the other



which is why this whole idea is just chock full 'o fail
Yes, proper pressue is critical to wheel protection, but it does not negate the role tire height plays. I have had hits on roads that tore the interior of the sidewall leaving a bulge on the side of the tire and not damaged the wheels because of tire height and proper pressure.

The discussion was about tire sizes - pointing out the importance of tire pressure was helpful; the rest was the vanity of a narcissist. But saying it is fantasy and fail makes your argument unassailable and you clearly the much more informed person.
