Re: Swamper TSL\'s ???
Don't you remember when I brought those 33x12.5 Swampers down for Yenkee Tim to try out? He ran the "Tough Truck" at Zookin' 2K with no air in them and they still wouldn't flex.
Give them a try, but don't be surprised if you have to leave the valve core out of them. They are also MUCH stiffer than the other TSL's, which is one of the reasons I use them on the heavier jeep.
If they don't work out, you should be able to pawn them off on some jeep guy for the same money. You could look into the 34x9.5's or the 34x10.5's, they are the same height as the 33's. The 10.5's have a little different tread pattern (with alternating TSL and Swamper on the outside lugs), but neither have the stiff sidewall.
I run my 32x9.5's at 4 psi and they work very well, but they only have 4 plys, not 8.
