Best Answer

Off road vehicle tyres can be partially filled with water for increased weight, traction and less side wall flex. Water can't compress so do not fill more than 50% or some thing with give(can't compress water). Not suitable for high speed or doing jumps. Great for front wheel drive vehicles on dirt road or mud, i.e drag racing.
