I made some comments on the AVENGER on the RUBICON elsewhere. I had thought of just putting slightly SMALLER tires on the front and rear and seeing what that did. It would be the same as changing the axles in regards to which tires touch the road, but the smaller tires would turn a bit faster so may wear quicker. One problem I noted with harder tires was "resonate frequency" where you get bouncing with the tires and it just seems to keep getting worse as you progress. By changing tire size, I think that issue would be less of a problem as the tires would "bounce" at different frequencies. Since I am now about to change to my WINTER driving set up, I will give the tire sizing plan a try. Will let you all know how it works.
