I have an F-150 with standard sized tires, they have an aggressive off road tread. Understanding the imitations of ground clearance and wheelbase and not planning on pushing these, how do you feel they will stand up to punctures (cacti or other vegetation) if I have to do a 3-point turn on a narrow trail or encounter a sharp rock(s)? I plan to bring 2 spares, a tire puncture kit and fix a flat in case of issues. I have no intention of going offroading or pushing the limits of my truck, just the general types of exploring described in most of the trip reports. I see some people going in passenger vehicles; however I expect/hope to go a bit further than them. I thank you in advance and weclome all opinions. Also in advance ... my apologies if this is in the wrong place in your website.
