    I know that 32 inch tires are great for rock crawling. But does anyone run them at high speed and in whoops?

    My boss raced with 32s a month or so ago, he never said anything specific about them.

    Woods race ofcourse with some jumps.

    I run 32" Cryptids on HD9 beadlocks on my X. They are not really a speed tire and I am still tweaking air pressure/preload/dampening, but they feel alright at speed (50-ish) on decent dirt trails when I've had the chance to open her up. My biggest issue is reduced contact patch because of the deep V tread style tire. In other words, the machines performance does not seem to be diminished at all by the tire size or weight.

    So you feel that a 50lb tire didn't really affect the power to much?

    Not really. I can obviously feel some affect in ride quality, but not power. changed riding habit to run in low more often, In high gear, it had no problem doing a burn out into the garage from the driveway. Well, no problem other than Mama being "not entertained" to put it mildly.

    Awesome to hear. I want to run 32s and really thinking about terribites. They are only 40lbs but from experience with the pioneer that's heavy. So I was scared to do so and found another dot tire that was only 35. I couldn make my mind up but I think I'll go with the teribites. Everyone says no power loss
