I read that thread. I like the width myself. That's my opinion. Stiffness does not worry me after I installed a set of K60's! One nice thing I noticed after looking at this pic is how similar the size of the large center lugs are between the TKC80 on the left and the Kenda Big Block on the right. Equally nice is how equal the width between the lugs are between the two tires, especially down the center.
