I tried the search box on your blog but nothing came up. What brand/kind of tires are you using for that type of travel?
Michelin LTX M/S2 tires, because I do about 90% of my driving on pavement. They've worked as well as I need them to on unpaved roads. Well, except for once in sand and once in some mud.
Thanks for the tire info Al ... I'll put that in my notes
