Interco line of tires (differences)

OK after looking at lots of USED MT tires for sale that weren't any better than the meats I'm already running for 1/2 the cost of NEW tires which will last me forever on a Zook ("I'm run-on sentance man! "), I've decided to keep the tires I have now until I can afford some BRAND NEW TIRES. Seriously considering an Interco/S.S. tire set. Unfortuanatly they have so many types now that I am confused as to which to get??? LTBs SSRs TSLs Qs ARRGGHHH!!!!!!
So!...........Who knows alot about all they're tires?
My requirements:
Not more than $900 for a set of four
Good aggresive tread (MT)
Good side lugs of some sort
33" or 34"ACTUALLY tire diameter
Around 12.5" width
Able to be balanced OK
Soft tread & flexy sidewalls (remeber only 2500lb rig here)
DOESN'T ROB TOO MUCH H.P., I love the way I can buzz right along with the 33's I got right now.

Discrepencies:
Don't care about road noise or tread mile wear rating
Don't want Boggers or Trucksux

Re: Interco line of tires (differences)

i JUST WENT THROUGH THIS AND DECIDED ON THE STD tsl IN A 33X12...rrrr...mostly bec. the compund is a little softer than the LTB. The radial TSL will ride nicer on the road and balance a litlle better and be a little lighter at the expense of sidwall strength and tread pattern agressiveness and a sligthly harder compound.

SSR would only make sense for a DD considering the extra expense IMHO. Also their are many who claim the sidewall is weak (but there are some who are happy with it too on a lightweight zuk).

I did not even balance mine and they ride just fine for the occational trip around town that I do...no bad vibes. I have not noticed an flat spotting either.

For a 33x12ish I think the std Swamper TSL is the way to go.

Re: Interco line of tires (differences)

Bill I have 33 tsl swampers and love them.If your looking for ride buy raidials(ssr)if not get the LTBs the price is right compaired to regular TSLs. TSLs flex nice once they have a few miles on them.I heared theLTBs flex nicly too.Stay away from boggers unless like broken axles.Boggers just seem to grab to good.

I have 33x12.5 swamper SSRs and I love them. they have more little edges to grab traction than the other swampers, and they are radials so the flex well. And they look really bitchin (thats important right?)

Re: Interco line of tires (differences)

My reasoning went like this. The SSR ia a lot more expensive and its benefits are over the TSL are on the street. LTB vs TSL price diff is basically a wash and the softer compoung on the TSL will grab better. It basically came down to TSL or radial TSL and I went TSL for the sidewall strength and the fact that it is an inch taller.

LTB - 33x13.50x15 6 $119.95
TSL - 33x12.50x15 $135.00
Radial TSL - 33-12.50R-15 $138.00
SSR - 33-12.50R-15 $179.00
