Milage from swamper tsl\'s?

Just wanted to know how many miles I should expect to get out of a set Super Swamper TSL's. I want an agressive tire, but I do a lot of freeway driving (about 35 miles a day) but am concerned about how quickly TSL's will wear. How many miles have you put on yours?

I ran a set of 32 9.50 tsl swampers for over 30,000 miles. If I had installed a front steering stabilizer sooner I could have went near to 40,000. This was mostly road miles at 12 psi unlocked.

Thanks, you just made up my mind. I will only drive about 10,000 - 15,000 miles (or less) a year, and I plan on buying new tires every year.

Re: Milage from swamper tsl\'s?

I've got 35" Boggers on my Zuk and have had them on for over 2yrs now, it looks the same as it did when I mounted them. I live on a military base, where everything is about one mile or less, so that might have something to do about it! But, I do drive it off base sometimes down the freeway too! Not really bad for a light vehicle
