I've been browsing thru' a lot of the threads - and come across great debates on the best kinds of gas pedals (floor mounted or hanging), best shoes for pumping/cranking/revving, the pro's and cons of barefoot vs. high heeled feet, "to be nail varnished or not nail varnished" (sorry 'Will), how to stall or flood the engine, do we like to see smoke from the tailpipes, is it the feet, the heels, the pedals - or the whole thing? WOW - we could go on forever.So - here's my "threepenny worth" to ask the guys..............."What kinds of tiresdo the best stucks?"- fat? skinny? radials? old crossplies? whitewalls/thinwalls? the rears or the front tires spinning? brand new treaded or worn out and smooth? the noises they make?Come on guys - I'm SURE we could have a good discussion on this one.
Oooops! - I"m stuck!! My tires are spinning in the mud!!!!

So - here's my "threepenny worth" to ask the guys...............

 

"What kinds of tires do the best stucks?"

 

 - fat? skinny? radials? old crossplies? whitewalls/thinwalls? the rears or the front tires spinning? brand new treaded or worn out and smooth? the noises they make?

 

Come on guys - I'm SURE we could have a good discussion on this one.

Oooops! - I"m stuck!! My tires are spinning in the mud!!!!

Surprisingly, wide, low-profile 'sport' tires are fantastic at getting stuck. Doesn't seem logical; one would thing wider tire equals more rubber contact therefore more traction. I guess reality is that the wider tires don't grip as well since they don't bite into the surface as much. Also, these tires typically have a less aggressive tread than most & therefore have a poor traction rating. Rear wheel drive will probably win hands down in the stuck/spinning category since there is less weight over the wheels. My Mustang GT gets stuck easier than any car I have ever had & is more difficult to get unstuck than any other too. Having a higher torque engine is contributory too: slow gentle starts are just not there.
Push harder honey, it'll start.

Most definitely the rear wheel drive. Front wheel stuck is ok but it is much better when the back tire is the one spinning. Also yes wider tires do get stuck easier. Of course the good ole worn out tires are great since there is not enough tread to get any traction...gotta love it.

Any kind of tire that you are spinning is good enough for me!!! (So take those sweaty hot boots off and floor that pedal!!!

I've spent time on both sides of the pond - but grew up in the UK through the late '60's and 70's - and most of the cars I remember as a child had fairly skinny tires. Cars like Triumph Heralds, Ford Anglias, Cortinas, Vauxhall Crestas, Viscounts, Riley's and Wolseys, Singer Vogues, Morris Oxfords. But some did have wider tires than others - notably the big Jaguars ( MK 2's, and the big MK 10's), Humber Super Snipes and Austin Westminsters - not forgetting the fabulous Ford Zodiacs (my Mom had an Estate and she was ALWAYS getting it stuck in our farm mud).

Despite the fact that skinny tires are supposed to be better in mud - I remember seeing cars stuck up to the rims and spinning all the time as a kid - at shows, sports days etc. The tires were crossplys (ies???) in those days, the tread was thin - and the rubber was harder and the flex in the tirewall much less - so as soon as they spun on wet soft ground they seemed to just cut into the mud like a hot knife through butter and get stuck. And they got REALLY stuck - no big spinning and slowly moving forwards - they just dug in and spun like crazy.

I always remember seeing my lady English teacher trying to back her Humber Estate out from under some trees at school - and her rear tires just whirled round in the wet grass and dug in deep after only about a foot of movement. After that - she just revved and spun in forwards and reverse going nowwhere, sinking in deeper with every burst of spinning.

My Uncle's Rambler Station wagon he brought back from the USA had similar traits - that easily got stuck in the Yorkshire mud at home.

I think one of the best I've seen though was at a BBQ in Laguna Seca when my b/f and I were out there for a while. A really good looking girl in a bikini tried to drive her '72 Ford Thunderbird through some marsh mud in the middle of a sand-dune track - TOWING A SPEEDBOAT on a trailer. Oooops!!

She was down to her axles in no time!!  And she refused to get out in her high heels!!

Oooops! - I"m stuck!! My tires are spinning in the mud!!!!

I agree low sport tires get stuck VERY easily. And I think that make a cool sound when stuck. Just my opinion.

 i have one observation.  check out a woman's tires when they have the raised white lettering like on a jeep or ford explorer.  they are always so good at rubbing against the curb so excessively that the lettering gets scraped off and the tire looks like a white wall.  that is so female in my book.  agree??  women do love to clean the curbs....

I personally think bald tires are best, the less tread on a tire the higher chance for a stuck :3
