Jeezus yes. You'll be fine. (Not getting snarky with you....my snarkiness is directed towards those that will wheelsize shame/brotruck you for having larger rims and less rubber.)i know its been discussed that 17's are the best wheel/tire size for off roading, but on a trail like this one shown in the video, does 17 vs 18 make that much of a difference??
I can take the OBX with stock tires on sandy desert runs, RIGHT?
Edit: gonna walk this back quite a bit...I have no idea if you could or should do what THEY are doing on anything less than the equipment they are running. My guess is hell no. I think they are hitting some pretty substantial whoops at 40+ MPH!
I read the words you used... "sandy desert runs"....as something much more tame, like beach cruising, which is the closest point of reference to a desert I have, being from Louisiana. It is quite possible I underestimated what you meant by that.
