i have heard everyone say "dont run that tire with that axle or it will break!" but what actually causes the break? Being too heavy on the gas? coming down too hard? Well, those are the types of things that i would think. So, here's what i need cleared up:
Is a 4cyl or 6cyl more likely to break an axle? or doesnt it matter? Is it related to the amount of torque you have?
If you have stock gearing with say 35'' tires, are you more likely to break 'em than if you have regeared the stock axle's with say 4.88's?
would lockers increase your chance of a break?
What terrain would most likely cause the break? Mud or rock crawling?
I am still debating if i should go SOA or SUA, with 35's or 33's. I have a 4cyl with stock axles, and i have heard numerous people say that 35's will work fine and others say i'll have problems with 33's. So, just need to know what actually causes the break and what i will need to look out for! Thanks
