Indeed, it is very interesting stuff Lambert and some interesting points you made there.

It has really challenged my views on tyre selection. Pretty cool stuff really.

Then, considering the same vehicle weight, same tire pressure, same sidewall strength, same tire compound and same thread pattern, the benefits of each tire would be:
Wider tire
• On tarmac: Smaller slip angle which means better grip when cornering
• Tarmac/off-road: better stability

Narrow tire
• On tarmac: Less aerodynamic resistance at high speeds
• Off-road: Less frontal resistance on sand, snow, mud and river crossing.
• Tarmac/off-road: less weight

Do I miss something?

Hello There,
There are no Toyo and Yokohama tires available in Turkey. So i have two options: Hankook dynapro rf11 and Bridgestone dueler at 001(both 215/75/15).
The weight of rf11 per tire is 17kgs which is too heavy for jimny.
As i do %80 on road and %20 offroad, i am planning to go for Duelers which are 13.7kg/tire.
Does anyone has feedback on Duelers?
