Re: Swamper TSL\'s

It depends on what type of TSL you get. some of them have siping to help with wet weather traction, i think it is the SSX that have that. go to this tread from the full size list http://bbs.off-road.com/wwwthreads//...collapsed&sb=5. they were discusing what was the better tire. hope this helps.

Re: Swamper TSL\'s

I have 38-12.5-15 TSL's on my k-5 and have never had any problems on the road or off. The wet weather thing seems to be an issue for some people, but I have been in the rain and snow and never had any problems. I am also not a lead foot in the bad weather, but they are not made for ice racing. I tell you for a fact that they are not any cheaper than M/T's though, unless you are getting some sort of a deal on theSwampers. I found them to be more expensive by ten or twenty dollars for most sizes and quite a bit more for larger ones.

JEEP its whats for dinner!
