    which in your opinion is a better deal.
    set of four super swampers (unknown style) 35x15x15 w/o wheels for $300/bo
    or a set of four dunlop mud rovers 35x12.5x15 with wheels for $250
    much help would be great cuz im going tonight to look at them... both of which i dont know the condition

    I would say the swampers unless they are thornbirds then dont those tires suck but all the other swampers kick a$$.
    If they are in good condition they sound like a good deal.

    Based on the size I'd bet the Swampers are the "SX" style. As far as which is a better deal there's almost no way to say since there are no compareable tread depths/percentages AND you're comparing radials to bias ply tires.

    I have Dunlop Mud Rovers. Got them on a barter deal so I couldn't tell you how much they were. They'd be okay for mostly street driving, however their big draw back is thin side walls.

    If you are doing any amount of rock crawling, you may want to consider the Swampers.

    I think it really depends on how much tread is left on each one.
