And ride quality is still ok even at 25 in front, which could be the sole benefit of IFS..
I kind of did that when I first got mine, but now I have more confidence in the sidewalls, and go 35/35 on road and 20/20 off road. When I was running 45 on road it was kind of harsh. I think these tires are designed to have more sidewall bulge than we are used to seeing in other models of tires. In fact, I used to ding up my rims a lot more with my BFGs than I have with the Duratracs.
