Running on rear.We run on fairly ruff tracks, will stretching out the tires on 8.5 wide rims make for a stiffer ride? Make it worse?I run 7.25 now with about 2-4 psi left and 8-15 right but need more traction.Will it make any more differance in traction to run wider rims with same size tire? thanks for any input.

Thanks for the reply Jeff.So is there any advantage in running 8.25 than 7.25 with the same tire size?
