    If you are treadlightly type driver, go alumnium. If heavy on throttle, well armored other spots down low, and with very good rock rims/rings to support this. then steel. MHO

    I get it on the treadlightly. But event then every one will bottom out from time to time. I just question weather it would get punctured or not. Maybe a sacrificial poly layer would be good for these types of skids.
