    Hey dep dog (and others), Saw reveiw on the offroad.com site on the 36 tsl radials. How have they lasted thus far? how are they riding and performing? What lift do you have on now? I think they are the tires i am going with, but want your $.02 on it. Really apprciate it!

    K-5- because size DOES matter!

    In a coon's age, come awn, I am here every day, may not post, but I am here EVERY DAY. I dont post unless I see that someone has not answered with what I would have said. I dont like to just repeat what everybody else has already said.

    I have about 2k miles on them and they are wearing fine. They do GREAT offroad and they ride better than my BFG Mud T/A's

    Shawn and Steve have probably put more miles on them than I have though.

    Overall I am sold.

    I am also running 4" of lift with cut out fenders and can pull 1000 on a 25 degree ramp. Ramp is no test to real world wheeling though, ask Keith or Grim how it wheels.

    I am running 36" TSL Radials too. I have only driven them one week, but they rode great for me it seemed. (I was running w/o rear shocks). But the 2 times I went 4 wheeling I tore everything up. They definately rule. The wear test will determine if I get another set, but so far I think the next set of tires I buy will be Radial TSLs.

    I had 38 TSL Radials on my Dodge and they after 2 years they were still in really good shape. Ran them at 24psi all the time. You couldnt tell the difference between them and a new set except for the little teets. They rode better than BFG MTs.

    "If it aint broke don't fix it" is like a 4 letter word.
