New 33\" tires

i want to go with 33X12.50 super swamper tsl radials. they look like a really aggressive tire and from a friend i heard they last quite a while. how good are they in mud and how long do they last? should i consider a different type of tire. thanks.

Re: New 33\" tires

They will do great in the mud, but wont last long if you drive them on the street. If you can afford it go with the SSR, it will do better off road and last on the street. If you can live with BFGs off road ( I say stand in comparison to the swamper) they will last twice as long on road.

Good Luck

Re: New 33\" tires

In my opinion you can't go wrong with the TSL's I put them on my jeep tis spring and I don't think I will ever go back to an AT tire. Sometimes I can't even believe how great they are in the MUD. They just dig and dig. And I don't mind them at all on the street. They ride great. They do humm pretty loud, but I don't mind that a bit. All and all I would say that the TSL is the greatest tire I have ever driven. However, I would not run them in the snow on the road.

What so bad about them in the snow? my father had a set of tsl bias ply and he used them as a daily driver. they last him over a year. i was thinking that the tsl radials would add a lot more life, and still have a great off-road abbility. and plus the more humming the better. i don't mind the noise at all, and plus they do grab quite a bit of attension [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: New 33\" tires

Was your dad running them on a heavy truck? The reason I ask is because you said he got only a year out of them. On a light truck like a jeep, they are said to last up to 30K as long as you take care of them.
And I would't run my tires in the snow. They are champs on the trails in the winter where the snow is deep and the speed is slow, but on hard pack or the road !!!! with the littelest blip your rear ends up in front. They don't grab ice (no tires do, but big MTs are about the worst) and the TSL is a big MT

Re: New 33\" tires

well my dad got about 33k out of them. when he wasn't using the jeep i was. but the closes good trail from us is at least 75miles away, and try runining to that atleast twice a week with the tsl's. and plus he used every day, we usually ran 3-4 times a week, even on the little trail around here. so i do expect a lot out of a tsl.
