I'm getting the TSL Radials in that same size you posted. I also have a set of Super Swamper LTB's 34-10.5-16's. They ended up being a bit to big and rub my front bumper a bit, now they're just sitting in the garage. LOL

The Radials I heard are awesome though... nothin beats a Super Swamper !! [}:)]

I've shipped 4 sets of tires and they've been up to $140 to Cali, to your zip $100 is a fair assumption. These are like new and still have the name on the lugs you drive on. No gashes or anything, just like new. They are a total of 5 tires and I paid 125 a piece. Send me a reasonable offer and I'll ship them out to you. Thxs !!

Only TSL /SX

I have TSL/SX 32x11.50-16LT. Best offroad tire ever!
A bit of rubbing on standard G at full turn. Limits turning circle a bit.

If off roading is the only thing that you are using them for Super Swampers are great. I used the TSL radials on a Jeep- they would climb anything you aimed them at. But as for the ride to the trail.......they do not balance, they don't wear worth a damn and they only get louder with time. I had a set of the SSR's and would not wish them on any one. I had to return them about a dozen times because they would not balance due to the tumors that grow on the side walls.

I ran 35 x 12.5 x 15's SSRs on my 280GE LWB for about 6 months. They were incredible in mud, also in sand they are great. Problem they have is soft sidewalls, so if you need to deflate on rocks they get ruptures MUCH easier than an MT/R or BFG. I've never ruptured a BFG ever in 100's of thousands of miles. I do like MT/Rs for certain reasons but have also ruptured them on pavement with blowouts.

see attached photos....

ok, here is what i've got. it's acually not a real roofrack but rather a rollbar. can be used as roofrack (obviously it's solid enough[8D] ) but was designed as rollbar. it's custom-made to clients request, and requires some welding and drilling to the body of your car. not to sure if that's not a bit o.t.t. for your purpose [;)]

SSR's are for show only

Hi,

If you are looking for the best tire for:
1. Off-road (not much mud) - get the SX or "normal" TSL
2. Rock climbing (no tarmac use, very soft compound) - Irok
3. Mud (no rock climbing) - Bogger
4. Road and looking good (Hummer style driving [:D]) - SSR

All Super Swampers of course. The SSR is really not designed for full off-road purpose. They lack the normal swamper sidewall thickness and protection. But the thread is more closed and it has more siping so it works "well" on-road.
