Do you think you can get a labrador in the trunk of one of those?

How much does the increased circumference affect the performance/speedo reading?

That's one bad ass looking ride, I would rock the shit out of that for a daily driver.

The tires are about 34lbs each, so that is the biggest factor. My all seasons ran about 5mph fast at 60 and these are about dead on with the signs that display your speed. Only one full tank on the new tires but looks like I lost a few mpg. Handling down the paved parts of the mountain I live on is the same when I push it, but night and day in the gravel and mud sections. Would of gone with the general grabber at2s as a lighter and cheaper version, but they are not snow rated in this size. Wrangler Duratracs are my preferred mixed use tire but the smallest size was .8" too tall.

I use a ford focus hatchback for dog duty, and one of mine is a 130lb German Shepard. Of course it can.

A Bone,

Thanks. If you hear that an ice race is planned please let us know.

I'll send the brother up in something interesting.
