Re: pics of my jeep.....
Darin: Nice ride!! What digital camera did you get? How do you like it so far?
PerJ: I'm definately with Darin on the SSR's tire wear...they wear fast on pavement. The rubber is so soft compared to say... BFG muds. Thats why my set is dedicated to strictly off-road. Itsnotajeep makes some good points about the SSRs (closer lug spacing, siping, etc.), but the most important one is SIDEWALL strength. I've got two SSRs with sidewall punctures. H8Monday has had 3-4. The tires are good traction tires. The siping really helps on wet rocks, but the sidewall strength is obviously a big problem. I am a fan of the swamper tires. The tsl radials, other than being narrow for their stated size, are good tires and wear well on the road. The TSL bias and SXs are GREAT off road, but are kind of harsh on the pavement. If you need an aggresive mud tire with some road manners I'd go for a tsl rdial in a size wider than you normally would order. Less aggresive, long wearing mud tire, I like the BFG muds...I run them as my "street" tires now. I don't have any experience with the MT/Rs.
