Jeep Jamboree USA Explains Tire Traction/Airing Down in 1 Image

So we are at the 2013 Jeep Beach event in Florida airing down Bond's tires for the obstacle course. A crowd walked up and asked if we were having an issue. They had never seen anyone air down tires before. This display, created by the volunteer staff at the Big Bear Jeep Jamboree, perfectly depicts why airing down is so crucial off road and aids in traction.

That's a nice display without having to explain it. What tires and load range were they?

that's a fabulous visual aid. Well played. Educated with no room for error. Bang-up-job. Air down= fatter contact patch= go places= be somebody= see things you never thought you would = discover new paths= win.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that they are the Falken Wildpeak A/T.

I've also seen a Falken tire that looks like an identical tread pattern called the Rocky Mountain ATS II. (?)

No idea but I'm guessing load-range E... dunno.
