What Tires

I want to get 35x14.4 SSRs now that I heard you can get good miles off of them. What tires do you guys think I should get? I can get the SSRs at Les Scwaub (which has great warranty and customer service) or Mail Order (a lot cheaper). Where would be the best place to buy them? Does anybody recommend a Mail Order Company, besides Tyres International (completely f$#ked up my Superlift order)?

Get them from 4 Wheel Parts. Got any pics of the ride? Here's one of mine, gots to show it off a little. I know I went with the MUD KINGS, but I get a big discount us being a dealer and all. I would definetly get the Swampers though. As soon as I get these brand new Mud Kings wore out I am gonna get a 3" body lift and 35/ 15.50/15 Swamper SX's.

Don't have any pic right now. I'll be sure to post some once I get them on disc!

Nobody has an opinion or tire they would recommend?

I would get the SSR's or SX's. I myself am a fan of the SX's. I've had 2 sets and loved em.. One set was 35/15.50/15's and the other set was 38.5/14.50/15's.. Did extremely well on highway, not too noisy, and threw real nice healthy chunkys in the mud to.

I really like the SX Swampers too. I am on my second set of 36x12.5 on my 89 f-150. These tires are all around a great tire, but, like any other non radial Swamper they do wear prematurly compared to the average $150 M/T. The SSR would be a great compromise as long as the price doesn't scare you away. There are also a couple of other new tires worth looking at. One is the Mickey Thompson Baja Claw-available now in bias or radial up to 35 (soon larger). This tire is deffinitly the best true off road tire Mickey has offered and does extremly well in mud. The other is the Yokahama Geolander M/T. This tire is radial only up to 35x12.5, in the lower dollar bracket, and very aggressive compared to the other cookie cutter M/Ts out there. I'll put up a picture of both for all-here is the Claw. Laters.
