    ok, i am lookin at the mickey thomson baja claws, the superswamper SSR's, TSL radials, and boggers. which has the bast mix of milage and good of-road skills. i will be driving the jimmy to school and wherever else i go, so milage is important.

    I heard baja claws wear rapidly! Of all these I'd say SSR's are your best bet!

    <font color=blue>I have TSL R's on my 71, but that truck basicly comes out of the driveway to go to the woods, so I can't comment on street miles (off road wears tires far faster than pavement use). If you stay on the streets most of the time, you might be better off with Goodyear or BFG mud terrains. The Radial swampers should last almost as long as a mud terrain as long as you pay carefull attention to air pressure and rotation

    I will agree with the claws wearing rapidly, even the radials, and they suck in sand unless you use the wider (16.5'' wide) ones. Of the 4, I would say get the TSL/R's. They seem to be better off road than the ssr's, but get similar mileage. Then again, what would I know, I have Mickey Thompson's.
