Any off-road driver will tell you the importance of having the proper tires. For off-road rock crawling, this is even truer. The size of the tire is a huge factor when it comes to rock crawling. This is because many off-road rock crawlers prefer to deflate their tires because they mold better to rough, rocky terrain and give better traction. Not only are bigger tires better because it allows the driver to deflate them, but it is also great because there will be more surface area that is in contact with the ground. Simply put: when there is more surface area in contact with the ground, there is better traction.
One of the best brands that provide bigger tires is the Super Swamper line. In particular, the Super Swamper TSL Bogger offers tires that go up to 54 inches in size. Another brand that is similar in size to the Super Swamper is the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw. Of course, when choosing the size of a tire, it is always important to think about the wheel and suspension of the vehicle. If a driver wants to build the meanest rock crawling machine by putting a 54 inch tire on, he will need a smaller wheel and higher suspension. The size of a tire can greatly impact a truck's rock crawling capabilities, and knowing what you want and what your truck can hold is important when picking a tire.
